WATCH: The comedic ballet Coppelia hits the Artscape Opera House
19 May, 02:02 PM
young stars of the Cape Town City Ballet (CTCB) are set to take centre stage in
the classic and comic ballet, Coppélia, at Artscape in Cape Town.
Based on the
well-known tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann, this sparkling production of the beloved
ballet has a short run from 25 to 29 May.
This mischievous plot, brightly-coloured costumes and
glorious music, Coppélia is as ideal for families and serious dance lovers, as
it is for newcomers to the ballet. True love triumphs in this enchanting
fairytale, which features three main characters - the young Franz, his fiancée
Swanilda and the mysterious doll-maker, Dr. Coppelius, who creates the
life-like doll, Coppélia.
Watch as the cast takes us through what to expect.
