Anchorage Ballet's Coppélia 2019
May 17th through May 18th, 2019
Welcome to the ballet!
Coppélia is a charming, funny and comical ballet for all ages! The ballet is about a girl named Coppélia who sits on her balcony all day reading and never speaking to anyone. A boy named Franz falls deeply in love with her and wants to marry her, even though he is already engaged to another woman. His fiance, Swanhilda, sees Franz throwing kisses at Coppélia. Swanhilda soon learns that Coppélia is actually a doll that belongs to Doctor Coppélius, the mad scientist. She decides to impersonate the doll, in order to win the love of Franz. Chaos ensues, but all is soon forgiven. Swanhilda and Franz make up and get married. The marriage is celebrated with several festive dances.
Anchorage Ballet’s Coppélia is presented by Anchorage Ballet.
