The Italians may have invented ballet but many think that the Russians perfected it.
Check out the Muscovite magic on Saturday 23rd March when Moscow Ballet La Classique performs at Alhambra Theatre, Dunfermline.
Two for price of one
If you like ballet then you’ll love this Big Deal which offers two top price tickets for the price of one to see the Moscow Ballet perform Coppélia at Alhambra Theatre, Dunfermline on Saturday 23rd March.
This magical show starts at 7.30pm but a Big Deal representative will be in the foyer of the Concert Hall dispensing tickets from 7pm on the night of the performance.
Originally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon to the music of Léo Delibes, Coppélia is based on two ETA Hoffmann stories: The Sandman and The Doll.
In the ballet, Franz is due to be married to Swanhilda but he has fallen head over heels for Coppélia.
The problem is that the captivating Coppélia is not what she seems. In fact, it may all be a big wind-up created by the odd Doctor Coppélius.
Will true love conquer all? Or will the course of true love run like clockwork with alarming consequences?
Regarded as one of the jewels of classical ballet, Coppélia also represents one of its true comedies. The ballet features constantly in the repertoire of the world’s leading companies.
A hugely enjoyable dance-spectacular, it is perfect for ballet lovers of all ages.
Coppélia will be performed by the world-renowned Moscow Ballet – La Classique.
Founded in 1990 by its current director Elik Melikov, the Moscow Ballet of Classical Choreography, or ‘La Classique’, is made up of stunning ballet dancers from the leading theatres of the CIS countries and the Bolshoi, Kirov and Ballet Theatres of Kiev, Odessa, Tbilisi and Perm.
