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. CBJ's contemporary retelling of the story will delight audience of all ages.
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.
This comedy with love is told through the vibrant choreography of the award-winning Bengt Jörgen. Emotional and captivating, it is one of the best balletic representations of fantastical storytelling the world over.
