TANZ DER VAMPIRE 2017 Slider © VBW / Preiml

Premiere on September 30, 2017 at the Ronacher

On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, DANCE OF THE VAMPIRES can finally be seen in Vienna again!

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.

Vam-power at the Ronacher: Three Counts for Vienna

The audience can look forward to three top stars in the role of Count von Krolock: Drew Sarich (Sep - mid Nov / from May 2018), Mark Seibert (mid Nov - end of Dec) and Thomas Borchert  (from Jan 2018 - mid Feb) are all returning to the VBW for this new production and will share the role between them.
