Description: Coppélia, a mechanical doll created by the toy-maker Dr. Coppelius, is so life-like that some believe she is his “daughter.” The mistake leads to intrigue and jealousy in this light-hearted 19th century ballet classic, based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffmann. With outstanding performances in the major roles, this is a Christmas treat for the whole family. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’ delightful score. Leo Delibes (1836-91), French composer, premiered in Paris, May, 1870. Marianela Nunez also stars in a number of other Royal Ballet classics.
