Boston Lyric Opera - Schoenberg in Hollywood

Music is only understood when one goes away singing it and only loved when one falls asleep with it in one's head, and finds it still there on waking up the next morning.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, 'Hamilton' is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Why See ?

The tale of mistaken identity returns!

The light-hearted comedy of George Balanchine's classic Coppelia returns by popular demand. Leo Delibes' score, called by The New York Times, "a classic of melody, orchestration, rhythm, and storytelling", is both lively and accessible. With more than 20 children from Boston Ballet School, Coppelia remains a jubilant and engaging classic for the whole family.

What is Coppelia about?

Coppelia is the life-like doll built by toymaker and magician, Dr. Coppelius. Coppelia is so beautiful and realistic that the Dr. treats her like his own daughter, and turns the head of a gentleman named Franz. However, Franz betrothed finds out about this somewhat betrayal and in a moment of jealousy impersonates Coppelia which leads Dr. Coppelius to believe that the doll has come to life!

Did you know?

In 1974, iconic ballerina Alexandra Danilova helped George Balanchine to stage the ballet. Danilova worked off her own recollections of the 1884 production which was choreographed by one of the most influential ballet master's in the history of ballet, Marius Petipa.
