Coppelia is the most classic of the French Ballets. Created in 1870 at the Opera de Paris, it fed on the evolution of the society and on the choregrapher's imagination. Here is a "sparkling" version modernized and pacey. The action takes place in the America of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Jérôme Robbins. Style and spirit of the musicals of Broadway, Hollywood fantasy... and 40 dancers!
