Dracula (melodrama)
Work Notes
Fun Victorian melodrama based on Bram Stoker’s book and subtitled ’The Vampire Vanquished’. The score may be performed quite simply as written, or used as the basis for something more elaborate, involving scenery, costumes and props. Scored for narrator, unison voices and piano with guitar chords, the seven songs can be sung by everyone, or solo voices (characters) may be used in contrast with the chorus. Ample scope to make use of conventions of the music hall such as hissing the villain! Vocal score on sale only. Wind, Brass and Percussion parts on hire.

Programme Note
Carey Blyton Dracula (melodrama)
These Victorian melodramas may be done quite simply or used as the basis for something more elaborate involving scenery, costumes and ‘props’. Or they can be done in any way in between. The songs may be sung by all the voices; or solo voices (characters) may be used to contrast with massed ‘choruses’; or the boys may sing the male songs and a girl, the only female song (twice); and so on. If instruments are used then choose banjo/ukulele rather than guitar; cornet rather than trumpet and so on, if a choice is available; aim for a music hall orchestra sound.
