Opening the year with the most whimsical and enchanting ballet of all-time, Coppélia is a joyous ballet that radiates revelry and merriment throughout the theatre, from the stage to your very own seats.
Based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffman, this three-act ballet tells the light-hearted story of the mysterious Dr Coppélius who owns a beautiful life-sized puppet, Coppélia. A village youth named Franz, betrothed to the beautiful Swanilda becomes infatuated with Coppélia, not knowing that she is just a doll. The magic and fun begins when Coppélia springs to life!

Next Session: Dance, The Nobel Art
21 January 2017, Saturday, 1pm-215pm
SDT Studios @ Bugis+ Mall, Level 7
As Mr. Balanchine once said “I do not want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance”. Dancers are a unique and beautiful breed of artists. A person who has trained and danced professionally will forevermore describe themselves first and foremost “I am a dancer”. How they prepare and progress to professional status, why they choose to pursue careers in dance, as well as their life of rehearsal, performances and touring is all part of the rewards of a life of a dancer. This One @ the Ballet will focus on the special quality that dancers share with each other as friends and artists. The trust and bonds that dancers share is demonstrated in the segments of ballets presented for this session. Three of SDT’s dancers will be interviewed to give you their history from their distinctive personal perspective.
