What does every child love about their bag of Halloween candy? Variety, of course!

We all loved the magical assortment we'd bring in after a good night's haul!

And so it is with this program. Your family will discover one treat after another.

From one of the most suspenseful TV themes ever written to an orchestral outing that illustrates a Beggar's Night romp; from a jaunty theme played at a seedy galactic bar to evocations of autumn from America's dean of composers; from scary music depicting a witch's hut on legs to a mystery revealing the murder of a composer: you'll join Neal and our artfully decorated musicians for an afternoon of fun and fantasy.

Our ever-creative Master of Ceremonies and Conductor, Maestro Neal Gittleman, will adopt a Halloween guise as is his tradition. Can you guess who he will be?

Be sure to wear your costumes and arrive at 2:00. Prior to the concert in the Wintergarden, we will provide activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Kids are invited to participate in the Halloween Costume Parade and more.

Who knew that being spooky could be so enchanting?

With prices at just $14 for kids, $20 for seniors, and $22 for regular adult admission, it's easy to afford seats for the whole family!

Back by overwhelming demand, Dayton Ballet returns to the Victoria Theatre stage to present a Dayton Performing Arts Alliance Signature Event: Dracula: Bloodlines.

Since the 1897 literary debut of Dracula, Bram Stoker’s story has been interpreted in various forms, but rarely has the backstory of this dark villain been explored.

Dayton Ballet’s Dracula: Bloodlines delves into the tale before the world’s most famous vampire emerged.

The horrifying myth of a historical figure named Vlad Tepes, known by many as Vlad the Impaler, a prince in the 15th century in an area near Transylvania, is the perfect place to begin. Act One of Dracula: Bloodlines will focus on this character and the events that led to his transformation into the best-known vampire in literary history. Act Two will see the emergence of familiar characters of the classic tale of Dracula, including Lucy, Jonathan Harker, Mina, Dr. Van Helsing, and Dracula himself.

Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke has created a riveting story that her masterful choreography brings to life on stage with the full force of the Dayton Ballet professional company of talented, athletic dancers. Guest vocalists from Dayton Opera will share the stage with Dayton Ballet to spotlight the production with a whole additional layer of meaning, and members of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will provide live accompaniment.

The intrigue, shadowing, and mystery of this classic tale is the perfect setting for a story ballet in the haunting month of October. The full artistic forces of the DPAA will present an unforgettable evening of performing arts filled with drama befitting the mysterious Halloween season. Do you believe in vampires?

Dracula: Bloodlines may just convince you that bloodthirsty creatures of the night actually do exist.

The Vistas Season for the Rockin’ Orchestra series starts off on a high note, bringing Jefferson Starship to the stage with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra.

One of the most influential and memorable groups from the 1960s and its Summer of Love, Jefferson Airplane defined the “San Francisco Sound” and became the first of the Bay Area bands to gain national acclaim.

The band, which evolved into Jefferson Starship in 1974, gave the music world songs that not only helped create an era but also have remained relevant even today.

Jefferson Starship band members David Freiberg (a cofounder of Jefferson Airplane), Danny Baldwin, Cathy Richardson, Chris Smith, and Jude Gold are dedicated to “breathing new life into the living catalog of the Jefferson legacy . . . staying true to the original spirit of the music.”

The evening’s performance will include such fan favorites as “White Rabbit,” “Jane,” “Somebody to Love,” “Count on Me,”  “Find Your Way Back,” and even songs from the band’s brief time as Starship, such as “We Built This City.”

IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES    

Verdi was so electrified by Victor Hugo’s controversial story that he composed Rigoletto at white-hot speed. "The subject is grand, immense, and there is a character that is one of the greatest creations that the theatre can boast of, in any country and in all history," he wrote his librettist. “…it came to me like a flash of lightning, an inspiration, and I said to myself…Yes, by God, this one can’t go wrong,” he informed his publisher a few days later.

In this beloved work, you’ll meet one of Verdi’s most vivid characters: Rigoletto, a hunchbacked jester who earns his living by amusing the lascivious Duke of Mantua. When he mocks the anguish of a father whose daughter is a victim of the Duke, the grieving father curses Rigoletto, setting into motion this tragic tale of love, remorse, and revenge, and showcasing some of opera’s greatest hits.

It is no wonder that Rigoletto is consistently in the top ten most-produced operas in the world. At the final curtain of its heart-wrenching finale, you’ll certainly be glad you came!
