Choreography by Charles Jude after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot Libretto by Théophile Gautier and Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges after Heinrich Heine. The ballet tells the story of a lovely peasant girl named Giselle who has a passion for dancing, and when she finds out the man she loves is engaged to someone else she dies of a broken heart.
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!
