Listeners will be terrified and treated to Philip Feeney’s “Dracula,” a ballet based on the novel by Bram Stoker. The program will be hosted by special ghost-host Morgana; a sorceress who has been frightening audiences for centuries.
Barbara Herbert, host of “Afternoon Classics,” is excited about the prospect of doing a Halloween special.
“So many people are fascinated with vampires; it is a perfect fit to play this ballet on Halloween night,” she said.
Not only will the Feeney ballet be played in its entirety, but the story of “Dracula” will be told between acts, complete with sound effects and musical cues. After the conclusion of the ballet, there will be a special surprise that listeners will have to tune in to hear.
The broadcast of “Dracula” can be heard from 9 to 11 p.m. on Halloween, Oct. 31, on KRCU.
