The dancers of the Lyon National Opera Ballet perform choreographer Maguy Marin's enigmatic, urban interpretation of Leo Delibes' rustic ballet. The story of a man's obsessive love for a beautiful woman who is actually a mechanical doll, COPPELIA is a striking interpretation of a classic myth.
Description by Image Entertainment:
The story of Coppelia explores a young man's passion for a beautiful girl who turns out to be a mechanical doll, exploring a popular mythological theme of creating a being who is more perfect and tantalizing than any human counterpart. From start to finish, Maguy Marin's "Coppelia" is a hugely entertaining and constantly surprising piece of dance theater. Marin transposes the piece from its original rustic setting to a modern, run-down urban environment and adds an edgy new twist to the story. Music by Leo Delibes.
