Ballet Ensemble of Texas presents Coppelia
Ballet Ensemble of Texas will present Coppelia, the delightful tale of mischief, mistaken identities, and an eccentric doll maker. One of the most lively and amusing story ballets, this 19th century comic classic combines a young couple’s tiff with the unusual workings of an old toymaker, Dr. Coppelius, whose greatest desire is to create a doll with a soul. When Franz becomes infatuated at the sight of a beautiful girl in the house of the mysterious inventor, he sets aside his fiancée. The feisty Swanilda isn’t above disguise and breaking into the eccentric doll-maker’s workshop to win back her fiancé.
