Description

Dracula, a Carpathian nobleman born dead from a Irish author’s imagination, today remains alive, a gothic holdout connecting tradition with modernity, resonating in a world of horrors his Victorian creator could never have imagined.

A century after his debut, Bram Stoker’s virile creation, Dracula, has been studied, worshipped, lampooned, adored and condemned. He is one of popular culture’s most enduring portraits of a thousand myths, some medieval, others very modern.

From Stoker’s literary line drawing, myriad images have sprung to life in comic books, art, role-playing games, club kids in white makeup and even a breakfast cereal. But it was Bela Lugosi’s role in the stage play which captured the essence of horror and terror and brought it into the 20th century.
