THE TALE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY RETURNS at the Boston Ballet!
The light-hearted comedy of George Balanchine's classic Coppelia returns by popular demand. Leo Delibes' score, called by The New York Times, "a classic of melody, orchestration, rhythm, and storytelling", is both lively and accessible.
Coppelia is the life-like doll built by toymaker and magician, Dr. Coppelius. Coppelia is so beautiful and realistic that the Dr. treats her like his own daughter, and turns the head of a gentleman named Franz. However, Franz betrothed finds out about this somewhat betrayal and in a moment of jealousy impersonates Coppelia which leads Dr. Coppelius to believe that the doll has come to life!
