A Korean music and dance concert drew a large crowd of students to Grant Auditorium on Tuesday night. Some of the students obviously don’t frequent folk concerts – a few even had their laptops and cell phones out – but the pieces in this Department of Ethnomusicology-sponsored performance were stunning enough to halt many audience members mid-text.

Upstate New York Ballet's "Dracula" is a performance full of manic grace.


“Dracula” opens with Jonathan Harker (Marco Abdelnor) in a nightmare, surrounded by ghosts and demons. As Jonathan writhes in terror on the bed, the corps de ballet surrounds him, frantically working their arms and hands in and out above him.  Occasionally, individual dancers break away from the corps to perform a solo of pirouettes and extensions, or the entire corps leaves Jonathan’s bed to cover the stage in chaotic movement.
