A Memorable Fine Arts Experience

2023 Youth Ballet


Summer tour from June 1-9!

Set to the timeless music of Leo Delibes, “Coppélia” is a comic story ballet set hundreds of years ago in a festive Hungarian village.  Follow the antics of Swanilda and Franz, two young lovebirds, who quarrel over the beautiful maiden in the window of the local toymaker’s shop.  Havoc ensues as Swanilda and her friends sneak into Dr. Coppelius’ toyshop to discover life-size, dancing toys, and the truth about the girl in the window.
