Boston Ballet Coppelia
Boston Ballet presents George Balanchine’s Coppélia, a lighthearted comedy set in a country village about a life-size dancing doll created by Doctor Coppélius. The life-like doll becomes the source of love troubles for a village couple, Swanilda and Frantz, when Frantz mistakes the doll for a real girl and becomes infatuated with it. Mayhem and hilarity ensue. “It is a wonderful and rare opportunity for audiences of all ages to experience the charm and beauty of Balanchine’s delightful ballet,” said Boston Ballet Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen.
