George Balanchine’s production of the comedic ballet Coppelia, dances into the Boston Opera House, as performed by the glorious Boston Ballet. Boston Events like ballet performances are some of the most beloved Boston Activities that take place during the year.

Coppelia reads like a coming-of-age story that is simultaneously melodic and rambunctious. Boston Events like the Boston Production of Coppelia are equal parts mime and elaborate dance steps, which spring straight from the rich Leo Delibes score, Coppelia is a rare find among narrative ballets.

With Coppelia, the music is the message, just as much as the physical action and plot line are. The story of Coppelia is told in 3 acts. Frantz, a peasant boy, loves Swanilda, a peasant girl, but he becomes infatuated with Coppelia, a beautiful vision in pink who reads on the balcony of the workshop of the mysterious Dr. Coppelius who is rumored to experiment with magic. 

Swanilda sees Frantz blowing kisses at the studious maiden, and sneaks into the doctor’s shop to learn where she came from. Swanilda discovers that Coppelia is actually a life-size doll made by Dr. Coppelius, and his shop is overrun by others of similar nature: an Astrologer Doll, a Juggler Doll, and many more.

You can choose from many Boston Hotels. Boston Park Plaza Hotel is a Luxury Boston Hotel set in the heart of Boston's Back Bay and close to all things that make Boston a top travel destination including; Boston Events, Boston Restaurants, Attractions in Boston, Boston Tours, Boston Activities and more. 

The story continues as Coppelia comes to life, and we find out that Coppelius is simply a lonely old man with an extreme need to protect his privacy. Coppelius causes us to laugh as he follows Frantz on tiptoe, or dumps his mug of spirits in effort to stay sober, but he tears at our heartstrings when Swanilda’s ruse is revealed and Coppelius is uncovered as a poor, broken man.

Coppelia was originally choreographed by Arthur Saint Leon in 1870, and is based on the book by Charles Nuitter after E.T.A. Hoffman’s ‘Der Sandman.’ Balanchine’s Coppelia features choreography created in collaboration with Alexandra Danilova, a ballerina famous for playing Swanilda with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo.

Balanchine’s Coppelia, which debuted in 1974, draws its first 2 acts from the 1884 restaging by Marius Petipa, and adds an exciting new third act. You can see it all when you stay at a nearby Luxury Boston Hotel like the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Are you looking for centrally-located Boston Hotels?
