Great Perfromances Coppelia

Great Performances “Coppelia”


Premiering Friday, Nov. 26 at 9 p.m.

Based on a 2008 stage production by Dutch National Ballet, Great Performances: Coppelia is a contemporary reboot for the digital age that sees Doctor Coppelius as a sinister cosmetic surgeon whose quest to build the perfect robot woman threatens the romance—and then the very lives—of young lovers Swan and Franz.

With everyone falling under the surgeon’s spell, Swan must act to save her sweetheart before his heart is used to spark life into Doctor Coppelius’ creation: Coppelia.

A modern fairytale for the whole family, this new interpretation features an innovative blend of live action ballet with 2D and 3D animation.

“Great Performances: Coppelia” features international ballet stars Michaela DePrince as Swan, Daniel Camargo as Franz, Darcey Bussell as the Mayor and Irek Mukhamedov as Baker, with new music by Emmy Award nominee Maurizio Malagnini, choreography by Ted Brandsen and direction by Jeff Tudor, Steven De Beul and Ben Tesseur.
