Program Notes

Originally choreographed in 1870, Coppélia is one of the most beloved works in the repertory. Ballet’s first romantic comedy involves two young lovers, multiple misunderstandings, a mechanical doll, slapstick humor and an eccentric scientist with magical powers. This soaring pas de deux is the culminating dance of the ballet – celebrating the wedding of lovers Swanhilda and Franz in gorgeous classical form.
