Stapleton Ballet presents Coppelia & Repertory Works, featuring Balanchine choreography and the music of George Gershwin
At The Playhouse in San Anselmo, Stapleton Ballet presents COPPÉLIA, a delightful story ballet that appeals to all ages!
Coppélia is the story of a mysterious inventor, Dr. Coppelius, who has made an enchanting, life-size dancing doll.
Franz, a village youth who is engaged to his sweetheart Swanhilda, flirts and becomes infatuated with Dr. Coppelius’ life-like dancing doll, Coppélia. Swanhilda decides to play a trick on both Franz and Dr. Coppelius by dressing as the doll and pretending to come to life!
This lighthearted ballet has been performed by many world-renowned companies, and was first presented in 1870. Coppélia features a gorgeous score by Leo Delibes.
The second act of this performance will feature Repertory Works, including Balanchine’s WHO CARES (set to the music of George Gershwin) and Cynthia Stanley’s INLET.
Adults – $22
Student/Senior – $16
