Cincinnati Ballet Presents Coppélia

Combine Frankenstein with the Nutcracker, add a dash of comedy and a heavy dose of whimsy — and you get Coppélia! Next weekend, October 21-23, the Cincinnati Ballet presents Coppélia for the first time since 2001.

Dr. Coppélius’ dream comes true when his latest creation, a doll named Coppélia, comes to life – or so he thinks! Little does he know, the doll has caused quite a stir among villagers. The entire family will be captivated by the charming doll, the quirky toy maker and the hilarity that ensues over love, infatuation and mistaken identities! Ultimately, love conquers all in this treasured comedic ballet.

Coppélia features the melodic music of Léo Delibes, played by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Kirk Peterson’s physical, classical and humorous choreography. The Cincinnati Ballet invites viewers to take your seats and enjoy as this beloved comedy comes to life at the Aronoff Center!
