Coppelia is one of the great comedic classical ballets and you can see it from June 3 – 4, 2023. Jeunesse Classique Ballet Society is presenting this story of a toymaker, Dr. Coppelius, who is so taken with one of his dolls (Coppelia) that he places her on his balcony for all the town to admire. Swanhilda spies Coppelia on the balcony and believing her to be a real person calls out to her to try to befriend her. She becomes angry when her attempts are ignored and storms off. Meanwhile, Franz, who is betrothed to Swanhilda, comes across the doll and also tries to gain her attention. Swanhilda catches him in the act and a madcap adventure ensues.
