Epic, gothic, sexy and frighteningly funny: in VBW's musical adaptation, Roman Polanski's Sixties cult movie hits the live stage, driven by a magnificent rock score, lavish set design and dazzling choreography.

When The Fearless Vampire Killers, the flamboyantly funny parody of the classic horror movie genre, directed by Roman Polanski and written by Gérard Brach and Roman Polanski, first hit the movie theaters in 1967, it became an instant cult success. Thirty years later, Polanski's highly amusing take on the now so immensely popular vampire theme had lost nothing of its spooky appeal, so the idea was born in Vienna to create a musical version–with none other than Polanski himself directing the world premiere.

Stunning sets and ingenious video projections allow the audience to follow the chase into the snow-swept mountains of Transylvania and Count von Krolock's creepy castle with its dusty library, spooky crypt and the sumptuous mirrored ballroom where "strangely" not everyone can see their own reflection. The show's perfect blend of stirring rock ballads, offbeat comedy, dazzling choreography and lavish set design rapidly achieved cult status and is frenetically acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. A cult classic far ahead of its time, anticipating the now ubiquitous vampire boom in popular culture (Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc.) by many years, DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES has its finger right on the audience's pulse-or rather, their vein. Let the dance begin!
