Dr. Coppélius' dream comes true when his latest creation, a doll named Coppélia, comes to life - or so he thinks! Little does he know, the doll has caused quite a stir among villagers. The entire family will be captivated by the charming Coppélia, the quirky toy maker and the hilarity that ensues over love, infatuation and mistaken identities! Ultimately, love conquers all in this treasured comedic ballet. The charming, melodic music of Léo Delibes, played by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, pairs perfectly with Kirk Peterson's physical, classical choreography that he punctuates with a lovely sense of humor and charm. As George Balanchine put it, "Just as Giselle is ballet's great tragedy, so Coppélia is its great comedy." We invite you to take your seats and watch as this beloved comedy return to Cincinnati Ballet for the first time since 2001!
