April 16 - April 17, 2016
One of the most lively and amusing of story ballets, Coppélia is filled with mischief, mistaken identities and an eccentric toymaker. Alan Hineline’s must-see staging of this 19th century comic classic combines a young couple’s tiff with the unusual workings of old toymaker Dr. Coppelius whose greatest desire is to create a doll with a soul. When Franz becomes infatuated at the sight of a beautiful girl who sits by the window in the house of the mysterious inventor, he sets aside his fiancée — the feisty Swanilda who isn’t above disguise and breaking into the eccentric doll-maker’s workshop to win back her fiancé. What follows is a delightful tale of mischief, mayhem and mistaken identities!
