Coppelia

Sun 17th Jun 2018 at 4:00 pm

Bolshoi, Recorded Live

The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.

Music:    Leo Delibes
Choreography: Sergei Vikharev
STARRING:  The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

Swanhilda notices her fiancee Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppelia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson…

The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fiancee with a wandering eye, and an old doll-maker.
