Epic love and action legends of Dracula, Son of Dragons, in the explosive choreography by Awards Winner Chiara Ajkun. Based on a true story.

Choreography & Libretto:  
Chiara Ajkun – original art


Fifteen Century, Walachia: the Ottoman Empire and the Balkans fought to control the lands. From this scenario raises the legendary story of Prince Vlad Dracul III (Dracula) of the order of the Dragon. Between fact and fiction, Chiara Ajkun’s ballet is an epic tale of passion, heroism, betrayal and war featuring Dracula’s explosive fights with Mehmet The Conqueror and his intense love nights with Mina. Not your usual vampire…

"Inspired by the magnificence of the Ottoman Empire and the European efforts to save their lands, Chiara Ajkun brings onstage her story on the real Dracula. Her ballet is lush, brilliant, choreographically superb, and visually spectacular. Tafaj, beautifully supple, is a gentlemanly dream lover and a ferocious warrior with a sinister penchant for mind play. Burbine is delicately beautiful and elegant. Intrigues, danger, and love keep you glued to your seat."

Chiara Ajkun’s Original Art is the signature repertory of the Ajkun Ballet Theatre, performed in Theater, and has earned the Ajkun Ballet Company worldwide reputation. Chiara believes ballets to be more enjoyable in a concise form – hence her one-act shows with minimalist scenery. Centerstage are the movements and feelings of the protagonists of the stories she often writes the libretto for, accompanied by music carefully selected.
