Coppélia

Melissa will be performing in the Colorado Ballet production of Coppélia at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the Denver Center for Performing Arts.

We start with “once upon a time” and end with “wow!” A children’s tale, perhaps. But this is really a magical event for everyone with an imagination and a funny bone. This classic ballet is filled with magic and mayhem. Start with one eccentric toy-maker, throw in a plan to bring a mechanical doll to life, and mix well with a red-blooded young lover, a jealous fiancé and an array of mischievous maidens. You end up with a wild mix of abracadabra, spooky adventure and plenty of old-fashioned love. Don’t miss this enchanting tale and playful choreography!
