Event description
A modern fairytale, told without words, Coppelia is a visually opulent adventure that blends live action ballet with charming animation.

About this event

Join us in our opening at the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture’s Cowell Theater with the North American theatrical premiere of COPPELIA!

Coppelia

Director: Jeff Tudor, Steven De Beul, Ben Tesseur / Choreographer: Ted Brandsen; (Netherlands/Germany/Belgium, 2021) 80 min / Genre: Ballet

When everyone in town falls under the spell of charismatic cosmetic surgeon Doctor Coppelius, feisty Swan must act to save her sweetheart Franz, before his heart is used to spark life into Coppelia – the “perfect” robot-woman the Doctor has created.

Coppelia is a visually opulent fairytale that blends live action ballet with charming animation. In this playful reimagining of the original ballet, the magical Doctor Coppelius casts a spell that enchants the entire town.

The cast is comprised of acclaimed ballet dancers from around the world, with Michaela DePrince in the leading role as Swan. Michaela’s celebrity stems not only from her work as a ballerina, but also as a writer, model and War Child ambassador.

Michaela DePrince will be in attendance at the Cowell for a post screening Q&A
