Coppélia - SOLD OUT
Young lovers create comic chaos in this witty ballet. Franz and his financee Hildy are curious about the beautiful girl, Coppélia. Jealous of Franz’s infatuation with Coppélia, Hildy begins to suspect things are not all that they seem. She and her friends decide to follow the perfect starlet home, eventually arriving at Dr Copplius laboratories. Inside, they stumble upon a magical and strange world, uncovering secrets that will change them forever! Setting the much-loved story at a County Fair choreographer Morgann Runacre-Temple (Carmen, Romeo & Juliet), with writer Stella Feehily, (actor on Fair City), has created a witty and pertinent ballet inspired by our own obsession with youthful perfection. With its nod to the movie glamour of yesteryear, its captivating dance and the charming music of Léo Delibes and Tom Lane, Coppélia will enchant and enthral audiences of all ages.
