Orlando Metropolitan Ballet’s Academy and Youth Studio Company, under the direction of Laura Torres, are more than happy to bring you this Coppélia Ballet Suite in two short acts, which will be lead by Madison Taberham as Swanilda/Coppélia.
One word to describe Coppélia would be “fun”, this ballet is an innocent love triangle that is really not a triangle, because Coppélia is in fact a lifelike mechanical doll able to fool the villagers into believing she is alive, including Franz, Swanilda’s fiancée. This story, then, is really about Swanilda discovering that Coppélia is not real and having fun in the way of revealing the truth to everyone else, not before playing with Dr. Coppélius’ feelings, and making him now believe his beloved creation is alive, as Swanilda dressed up as Coppélia and took her place in the house.
