Classical Ballet in 3 acts

Everyone who tried to write about Coppélia, couldn't agree more with words by George Balanchine, who named this brilliant work by Léo Delibes the ballet’s greatest comedy.

The smile keeps on lips while watching this ballet, full of humor, comic scenes and charismatic characters. It makes you plunge into world of confusion and charming chaos where a lovely girl proves that no ideal image can be compared with an alive and passionate woman, even with all her imperfections.

A timeless classic coming from the golden age of ballet, nowadays Coppelia is frequently performed on the world's leading stages. Tchaikovsky declared this music to be charming, delicate and melodically rich — all these czardas, mazurkas, waltzes… And Pierre Lacotte, unofficially crowned as «the best ballet reconstructor of the world», has restored the ballet, as close as possible to the text of its first choreographer, the greatest ballet wizard and magician of all times — Arthur Saint-Léon.

Since 1973, this window to the charming 19th century was opened only in Paris Opera, but in January 2019 it will be widely spread in Vienna thanks to the Wiener StaatsBallett and its artistic leader Manuel Legris. And in a few short weeks, in April 2019, this ballet miracle will be presented to the audience of the Dance Open festival.

By the Coppelia the festival carries on tradition to present in St. Petersburg legendary ballets of the past. In 2016 Romeo and Julietby Sir Kenneth Macmillan reconstructed by the Perm Ballet opened this festival line. Last year it was maintained by Sergei Vikharev’srevival of Marius Petipa’s La Fille Mal Gardée for the Ekaterinburg Ballet. And in upcoming 2019 the audience will have a unique opportunity to enjoy Coppélia almost the same as it was created by Saint-Léon and met with applause at the court of Napoleon II
