Coppélia and the Toymaker is set to continue Ballet Arkansas’ 2021-22 main stage season. Originally premiering in Paris in 1870, Coppélia and the Toymaker is one of the world’s most celebrated ballets.
This humorous ballet is perfect for families, featuring drama and virtuoso dancing in three acts with music by Leo Delibes and choreography through Marius Petipa.
“Ballet Arkansas is pleased to present this ‘fan favorite’ as part of the 21-22 season. Featuring a cast of 50 community dancers alongside the professionals of Ballet Arkansas, the production is a community endeavor we can all be proud of,” Executive and Artistic Director Michael Fothergill says.
Tickets will range from $30-$40, and are available through the Ballet Arkansas website.
Public performances will be held Feb. 17-20 at UA-Pulaski Technical College’s Center for Humanities and Arts in North Little Rock. Each showing will run approximately 1 hour 45 minutes and will have a brief intermission.
