Series: Irene Adler

Summary :

A series of 6 letters dated from March 3 through May 4, 1886, written by Irene to Nell in London from Warsaw. Irene is singing at the Imperial Opera where Marylka, a maid, befriends her. Marylka warns her about a vampire, and gives her a silver cross blessed by the Pope, and strings of garlic cloves and warnings of vampires. They are practicing the opera Boris Godunov, in which Irene is playing Marina. Lucinda, a blonde English ingenue, and Henri, the tenor behind the scenes are in love. Horst is the baritone, an Austrian, lean and 60ish. Wilhelm von Ormstein, the crown prince of Bohemia, is courting Irene. Bram Stoker visits Irene, hoping to get material for a book. Lilla and Violetta, two singers disappear. Count Dracula seems to be taking Lucinda away from Henri, who comes to Irene for help. Irene, who doesn't believe in vampires, gives Lucinda the cross and garlic and tells her the Count is a vampire, thus scaring her away from him. The Count comes to Irene instead. Irene shoots him, with no results, and the Count puts a trance on Irene so she is helpless when he goes for her neck. Too bad for the Count. Afterward, Irene is musing about her next role as Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus (the Bat).
