The Lord of Cries

You have been asked once

He lands tonight, on his ship of ghosts, under the scudding skies. His high, thin voice – Ecstasy and ruin! Dracul, Dracula: the Lord of Cries! Deny him not his place.

John Corigliano and Mark Adamo’s exciting new work is a juxtaposition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Bacchae by Euripides. The result is a searing account that points to the monster inside ourselves, not society. This world premiere production is led by director James Darrah who has created a dream-like realm that will frighten and excite.
