From the Artistic Director —
I first performed the role of Franz in Ronald Hynd's Coppélia.
It’s a traditional classical ballet, and while the work has an incredible sense of humour, it also has drama and emotion which people can relate to. The dancing
is beautiful and elegant, and Delibes’s score is stunning.
It was a pleasure to commission Greg Horsman, our Ballet Master, to create a new Coppélia for us. We are very lucky to have such a talented choreographer in our midst. Greg will bring his flair for choreographing classical-style ballet to this traditional work, and his distinctly Australian scenario is perfectly suited to the delightful story.
What really appeals to me about Coppélia is that it’s a ballet the whole family
can enjoy. Audiences will leave the theatre feeling uplifted and entertained by
an evening of beautiful dancing and music.
