Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema: COPPÉLIA
For the 2017-18 season, the Bolshoi Ballet opens its doors to North American audiences in cinemas for the 4th consecutive season, presented by BY Experience and Pathe Live. The robust new season will feature awe-inspiring reconstructions of historical ballets.
Swanhilda notices her fianceé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson…
The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fianceé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.
Music Léo Delibes
Choreography Sergei Vikharev after Marius Petipa and Enrico Cecchetti
Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
Each program will be preceded by a 20 minute “pre-show” which takes place before each ballet. It includes views of Moscow, the Bolshoi Theatre, interviews with dancers, and the season trailer.
