Description

ABOUT THE BALLET

Coppelia is a ballet that tells the story of a young man named Franz who falls in love with a life-sized dancing doll named Coppelia. The doll is created by an eccentric toy maker named Dr. Coppelius, who is obsessed with bringing inanimate objects to life.

The ballet is known for its lighthearted and comedic nature, as well as its technical demands on the dancers. The role of Coppelia requires a dancer with excellent technical skills, as they must convincingly portray a life-sized doll come to life. The role of Franz is also demanding, as it requires a dancer with strong acting abilities to portray the character’s mix of mischief and infatuation.

ABOUT THE COMPOSER

Léo Delibes (1836-1891) was a French composer and pianist. He is best known for his ballets and operas, such as Coppelia, Sylvia, and Lakmé. Delibes was born in Saint-Germain-du-Val, France and began his music career as a church organist. He later studied at the Paris Conservatory, where he won several awards for his compositions. Delibes made his debut as a composer in 1853 with his one-act opera Le roi l’a dit. He wrote several operas throughout his life, but he is most famous for his ballets. Coppélia, which premiered in 1870, and Sylvia, which premiered in 1876, are considered some of the greatest ballets of the 19th century. He died in 1891 at the age of 55.
