At The Ballet


To close our season, we've chosen classical ballet's greatest comedy, Coppélia. A story of mistaken identity and a beautiful mechanical doll, Coppélia leaves young and old alike bemused by the antics of our two confused lovers, Swanhilda and Franz.

With a beautifully engaging score by Leo Delibes, you'll be whisked away to a doll maker's workshop on Mother's Day weekend.

Choreography: Arthur Saint-Léon
Music: Leo Delibes
