Classic Storybook Ballet
March 17-19, 2017 | Halton Theater
The comedic ballet Coppélia is brought to life by the Charlotte Youth Ballet featuring the choreography of Charlotte legend Gay Porter and Bridget Young. Coppélia is based on two stories by E. T. A. Hoffmann, Der Sandmann (The Sandman) and Die Puppe (The Doll).
Dr. Coppélius is a doctor who has made a life-size dancing doll. It is so lifelike that Franz, a village youth, becomes infatuated with it and sets aside his true heart's desire, Swanhilda. She shows him his folly by dressing as the doll, pretending to make it come to life and ultimately saving him from an untimely end at the hands of the inventor.
