Event Description:

Join the Mankato Ballet Company at the State Street Theater for "Coppélia" a comic ballet.

As George Balanchine put it, “Just as Giselle is ballet’s great tragedy, so "Coppélia" is its great comedy.”  The ballet is an obvious deviation from Romantic ballets, which featured ethereal figures like sylphs and wilis, long tulle dresses for costumes (later known as Romantic tutus), and tragic endings. In contrast, "Coppélia" featured human characters (that is, apart from Dr. Coppélius’s dolls), and ended with the central characters, Swanilda and Franz, in blissful matrimony.
