Event Description

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen's Coppélia is a funny, fantastical tale of an eccentric toymaker and his greatest creation. Coppélia is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballets and is the best known and most performed comedic ballet. With clever, witty choreography and a bright, lighthearted score by French ballet master Léo Delibes, this merry tale of love, life, and mistaken identity is an enchanting experience that will delight all ages.

This wonderful production from CBJ is a daring, bold and amusing story that takes us into the mysterious mind of Dr. Coppélius, a lonely and disillusioned toy maker who wishes he could bring his creation of a perfect, life-sized, dancing doll to life. The story’s beauty and hilarity develop quickly as Nathanael, one of the local villagers, falls madly in love with the doll. His sweetheart Klara enacts revenge, and confusion and love are explored through her pretending to be Coppélia to punish Nathanael.

Choreographed by Bengt Jörgen and set to the original score by Leo Delibes, this production of Coppélia originally premiered in 2001. Emotional and captivating, it is one of the best balletic representations of fantastical storytelling the world over. Coppélia is one of the CBJ’s most popular family ballets.
