Coppélia: A Comedy with Love    |  March 26, 2019 at 7:30 pm

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s 31st season is featuring the beloved comedy Coppélia: A Comedy with Love. Coppélia is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballets and is the best known and most performed comedic ballet.
It is a daring, bold and funny story that takes us into the mysterious mind of Dr. Coppélius, a lonely and disillusioned toy maker who wishes he could bring a perfect doll to life. Dr. Coppélius creates Coppélia, a stunning, life-sized dancing doll. The story’s beauty and hilarity develop quickly as Nathanael, one of the local villagers, falls madly in love with the doll. His sweetheart Klara enacts revenge, and confusion and love are explored through her pretending to be Coppélia to punish Nathanael.
CBJ’s retelling of the story will delight audience of all ages and is one of the company’s most popular family ballets.

Choreographed by Bengt Jörgen and set to the original score by Leo Delibes, CBJ’s production of Coppélia: A Comedy with Love originally premiered in 2001 and is an international co-production between Canada’s Ballet Jörgen and The Hong Kong Ballet.
