The Victor Ullate Ballet brings to its repertoire a new version of this important, internationally performed classic.
Choreographer and artistic director Eduardo Lao emphasizes the comic spirit of Coppelia while keeping the original score, written by Leo Delibes in 1870.
This interpretation of Coppelia is set in a cybernetic laboratory specialised in artificial intelligence, where Doctor Coppelius is attempting to create a female android that moves and acts like a human. Against a backdrop of futuristic sets, the Víctor Ullate Ballet clothes this classic in a new, bouncy and colourful fairy tale wardrobe.
Coppélia marked a milestone in Léo Delibes' career - he succeeded in combining music and dance at an entirely new level, and as a result he is often called the "father of modern ballet music".
Choreographer Eduardo Lao received the 'Public Award' of the Performing Arts in 2012.
