With choreography by Artistic Director Karen Kroninger Knerr, Coppélia is an enchanting tale about a mad inventor and the life-like doll he creates.  When a village boy becomes infatuated with the doll (thinking it’s a real girl!), his fiancée becomes unhappy. The ensuing mix-ups and misunderstandings between the two young lovers sets the stage for plenty of hilarity.  Coppélia features the beautiful music of Léo Delibes, a French composer of the Romantic era, who specialized in ballets, operas, and other stage works. He influenced some of the greatest composers, among them Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns, Debussy, and Drigo.
