One of the most profound film directors Roman Polanski made movie for the popular at those time theme about vampires. Director has created especially beautiful film in which lyricism, mystery and disquieting presentiments are adjoined by humor.

Movie of Polanski was such a success that idea to create musical based on its material arose.

On 4th of October 1997 opening night of “Tanz der Vampire” took place in Viennese theatre “Raimund”, it was such a success that theatres of various countries became interested in the show. 12 years later Cornelius Baltus realized direction of new version “Tanz der Vampire”, opening of new version took place on 17th of September 2009 on the stage of “Ronacher” theatre.
