About the Ballet

Coppélia in Paris is TCB’s fun twist on one of the world’s most famous ballets, the comedy Coppélia. Set in 1920’s Paris, the ballet mixes humor and beautiful dancing. The story moves between “real life” company scenes and traditional dances of Coppélia, showing how life sometimes imitates art . . . or is it the other way around? Suitable for all ages.

We look forward to seeing you at the ballet!
