View the Royal Ballet's performance of Coppélia at the Powerhouse Theater


January 23, 2020

The 2020 Live Cinema Series will begin with a screening of The Royal Ballet's current production of Coppélia on Wednesday, February 5 at 6:00 p.m. at the Gesa Powerhouse Theater. This production was filmed live at The Royal Opera House in London and is rebroadcast to select theatres. 

Ninette de Valois' charming and funny Coppélia is a classic in The Royal Ballet repertory-a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes' delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole Company. Osbert Lancaster's designs bring a colorful storybook world to life in this visual treat for the whole family.

Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.

This screening has an approximate runtime of 2 hours and 45 minutes, including two intermissions. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
