Presented by The Houston Ballet
May 17 - 26, 2019
Choreographer: Ben Stevenson OBE, after Arthur Saint-Leon I Music: Leo Delibes
We’re excited to bring back Coppélia, a Houston Ballet treasure created by former Artistic Director Ben Stevenson OBE. The story follows charismatic young lovers, Franz and Swanhilda, as they encounter the dollmaker Dr. Coppélius and his creation, the beautiful Coppélia. This lighthearted three-act story ballet, with colorful and charming costume and scenic designs by the legendary Desmond Heeley and a magical score by Léo Delibes, has long been a family favorite for Houstonians of all ages.
