Moscow Ballet La Classique presents Coppelia


  • Date: Thurs 21 March 2013
  • Time: 7.30pm

Coppélia is a classical ballet in three acts and is regarded as one of the jewels of classical ballet, representing one of its true comedies.

Coppélia constantly features in the repertoire of the world's leading ballet companies... and wears its age with pride and a smile.

Ballet's Livin' Doll captivates the flirtatious Franz - to the despair of his feisty fiancé Swanilda. But, of course, it's all a bit of a wind-up and true love eventually wins the day in this truly enchanting tale of eccentric Doctor Coppélius and his clockwork creation.

In short, Coppélia, whose true identity is revealed by the ballet's subtitle - The girl with Enamel Eyes - is a love story infused with charm and comedy; there's an eccentric old toymaker, Doctor Coppélius, the feisty Swanilda, her fiancé Franz and the amazingly life-like doll, Coppélia, together with a supporting cast of youthful, mischievous characters.

Could love between a doll and a human be for real...or is it just a fairy tale? This delightful production of the much-loved Coppélia captures the imagination with the passion, humour and magic of the ballet.
