Dancers Will Take Their Final Bow When The Comic Ballet Coppélia Ends The Magic Of Bolshoi Ballet Season 2017-2018

Ballet in cinema: at Ster-Kinekor Nouveau Theatres

Bolshoi Ballet season 2017-2018 Ballet season ends on high note

Coppélia: From 04 August 2018

The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia is the most charming comedic love story. It shows a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this cheerful comedy involving a Swanhilda, a feisty heroine who decides to teach her fiancée, Franz, a lesson because of his wandering eye.

Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia, who sits reading on her balcony each day. But the mysterious and charming Coppelia is not what she appears to be, and almost breaks up the two sweethearts.

The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines on stage in the famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals seem to be in flight with youthful energy, and irresistible humour in this effervescent production.

Duration: 2 hours and 45 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

If you’re a hopeless romantic, then Coppélia is a must see!
