The musical show at the Brancaccio Theater, directed by Ario Avecone, is a reinterpretation of Bram Stoker's 1897 literary work and is set in a world in which industrial development and the exploitation of energy resources have given rise to a strange fog which envelops a small town in the north of England, in a grip of fear due to unexplained deaths and disappearances.
Professor Van Helsing - played by Christian Ginepro - a rational alchemist interested in finding a link between science and the occult, seeks a logical method to make sense of all these mysteries and find the key. At the centre of the story is the town of Whitby, where strange characters move but above all the place where the home of the mysterious foreigner, the Count Vlad, played by Giorgio Adamo, stands. The diabolical vampire is accompanied by the figure of the Countess Justina, a character not present in Stoker's story, who represents the symbol of the brides forgotten over time by the Count.
The Hollywood-style soundtrack is inspired by the great film composers: the original songs cross different musical genres with ease, from pop to rock, to modern ballads and are functional to the story. The staging curated by Michele Lubrano Lavadera and Ario Avecone and the use of lights by Alessandro Caso are in a post-industrial style and evoke on the one hand the myths of filmography, such as Mad Max, on the other the most recent reinterpretations of novels of the late nineteenth century, such as Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes or the Twilight saga.
