COPPELIA 2023

The season comes to a close with a revival of Brett Raphael’s 2010 production of the full- length story ballet, Coppélia, featuring all new sets and costumes. The most popular ballet ever produced at the Paris Opera (where it premiered in 1870), the ballet follows a young girl, Swanhilda, and her escapades inside the toy workshop of the fantastic Dr. Coppelius. With colorful national dances from Poland and Hungary, this

family-friendly ballet culminates with the famous “Waltz of the Hours” and the wedding of Swanhilda and her sweetheart, Franz.

 

A special Share the Magic student performance for Hartford Public School children is scheduled for Friday, May 19. For info on tickets for Share the Magic 2023, visit www.hartfordperforms.org.
