Bolshoi Ballet: Coppélia

July 1, 12:55 PM3:40 PM

$13 – $15

A story of sneakery, imaginary magic, and drifting love, Coppélia is one of the earliest ballets, if not the earliest, that features a doll coming to live as an important part of the story. It was partly because of Coppélia’s success that other ballets, such as the Nutcracker and Petrushka, have dolls that come to life in them. The story is adapted from Der Sandmann by E.T.A. Hoffman which is quite a dark story, however, for the ballet the story was made to be quite fun.

The main characters are Franz, his fiance Swanhilda, and Dr. Coppélius. Dr. Coppélius is, as we find out later in the ballet, is obsessed with making life-size mechanical dolls and has one in particular that he wants to come to life.

This performance is an encore high-definition broadcast from Moscow. The running time is 2:40, with two intermissions.

Tickets: $15 Adults, $13 Seniors. (Prices do not include handling fees.)
