This is top-drawer art house entertainment.
Its target audience is fans of Vampire-Fantasy, and there were many in the intimate 90-seat theatre – perfect venue for a show like this, no artificial sound system needed.
Sandro Colarelli gives a virtuoso performance, playing the narrator; ‘the Lady’ of the title (a pre-World War I Countess); and her governess who cares for her as well as inveigling men to ‘the Lady’s’ decaying castle for her pleasure.
