Festival Ballet Theatre Presents Coppélia + Giveaway

Festival Ballet Theatre will enchant Orange County audiences with its performance of Coppélia on March 24 and 25 at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. Following a very successful Nutcracker season of sold-out performances, FBT presents the sentimental comic story which will delight audiences with its humor and charm.

Set in a small European village, this beloved ballet tells the story of an eccentric inventor, Doctor Coppélius, who creates a life-size dancing doll that looks so lifelike, some believe she is real. When young villager, Franz, becomes infatuated with the doll, he casts aside Swanhilda, his true heart’s desire. Swanhilda shows Franz his folly by dressing as the doll and pretending to come to life. Based upon two stories by E. T. A. Hoffmann, Coppélia was originally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon, with music by Léo Delibes. Love, laughter and exquisite dancing make Coppélia a ballet to remember.
