Joyous and witty ballet for all the family
8:30am Saturday 20th October 2012 in News
PRESENTED by the Vienna Festival Ballet, Coppélia is coming to Bromsgrove.
The enchanting production sees eccentric toymaker Dr Coppélius planning to bring his mechanical doll, Coppélia, to life.
All he thinks he just needs the right spell.
When Dr Coppélius leaves Coppélia on his workshop balcony she’s soon causing quite a stir in the village.
Particularly in the heart of redblooded young lover Franz, and the jealous mind of his real-life fiancée, Swanilda – who’s mistaken the mannequin for a crying, talking, sleeping, walking rival.
With a wild mix of abracadabra, and some mischievous maidens, comic chaos is unleashed when humans and mechanical dolls collide in Dr Coppélius’s spooky toyshop.
Vienna Festival Ballet’s production of this joyous and witty ballet is an ever-popular celebration of love, with a sparkling score and breathtaking choreography.
The show, guaranteed to lift the hearts of all the family, is at the Artrix on Saturday, October 27 at 2.30pm and again at 7.30pm.
