March 24 – 25, 2018
A mysterious inventor, Doctor Coppélius, has made a life-size dancing doll that is so lifelike that Franz, a village youth, is infatuated with it. He sets aside his true heart’s desire, Swanhilda, who shows him his folly by dressing as the doll and pretending to come to life. Based upon two stories by E.T.A. Hoffman, Coppélia was orginally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon, with music by Léo Delibes. This family-friendly production is staged by Salwa Rizkalla and features renowned guest artists Beckanne Sisk and Chase O’Connell of Ballet West in the lead roles.
