"...Annette Delgado and Javier Torres need no narrative context, plunging straight into the piercing poignancy of a love duet danced beyond the grave. Delgado's delicately moulded phrasing, contained within the elegant ardour of Torres, makes you wish you were seeing the ballet in its entirety"
"Dracula is played by Javier Torres, who embodies the character with the sort of virile charisma that we have come to associate with Stoker’s protagonist. With his slicked-back hair and oversized black cape, he reminds one immediately of Bela Lugosi in the Universal film....there’s no denying Torres’s command of the stage.
