|Canada's Ballet Jörgen: Coppélia
||March 2, 2019
||Horizon Stage Performing Arts Centre Map it
1001 Calahoo Road
Spruce Grove, Alberta
The story of Coppélia takes us into the mysterious mind of Dr. Coppélius, a lonely and disillusioned toy maker who wishes he could bring his dolls to life to find his perfect wife. He creates Coppélia, a life-sized dancing doll so beautiful that Nathanael, one of the local villagers, falls madly in love with her. Nathanael’s spurned sweetheart Klara enacts revenge by dressing as the doll and pretending to come to life. This comedic love story is told through the vibrant contemporary choreography of the award-winning Bengt Jörgen. Coppélia is a playful fairytale that features a set of large interlocking geometric shapes which are integrated into the choreography through intricate scene changes. Coppélia is like a real life Toy Story, told through dance.
