Experience Dracula like never before in an elegantly spooky immersive journey.

This Halloween season, Never More Immersive, Bucket Listers, and Musica are collaborating to create “Dreams of Dracula: An Immersive Masquerade Experience.” 

Spanning six rooms across two floors, “Dreams of Dracula” is a choose-your-own-adventure-style experience that will take you through the history of this famous vampire. Those who attend “Dreams of Dracula” will be able to explore the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s gothic story while also potentially co-writing a gothic ghost story or having a poem composed in tribute to their beauty.

A mix of dance, masquerade, and immersive theater, this experience will invite guests to dive head-first the dreamtime, the shadow world between sleep, nightmares and ecstasy, and guests may end up having their own dreams analyzed throughout their visit! Those who are 21+ will also have access to the Oscar Wilde Salon where they can enjoy themed cocktails while being entertained by Wilde himself and his friends.

A custom app created by Shivoo Studios will allow guests to fully immerse themselves further in the experience by interacting with their dreams as an augmented reality post experience after the show.

Guests must wear black for admission, and Friday and Saturday nights require Black Tie attire. Gothic or Victorian costumes are highly encouraged. All ticket holders are provided a mask based on their ticket level: black for general admission, gold for VIP, and platinum for guests who purchase private boxes, which feature private rooms graced with two-way mirrors, allowing the guests to watch the story unfold while remaining unseen. Those who purchase a private box will also have a dedicated attendant, bottle service and exclusive cast interactions.

A note to those who are thinking of attending: hypnosis, tarot readings, scary tales, darkness, flashing lights, thunder, lightning, and blood will be a part of the experience. You must be 18+ to attend.

“Dreams of Dracula: An Immersive Masquerade Experience is located at Musica NYC: 637 W 50th St., and will be open from Oct. 4 through Nov. 11. Tickets start at $69 and are available at bucketlisters.com.
