New York City Ballet closes their 17/18 Season with Balanchine’s charming comedy "Coppélia." This delightful tale presents budding romance alongside the curious contraptions of an eccentric inventor. Infatuated by Dr. Coppélius’s new creation, Frantz evades his darling Swanilda and sneaks into the inventor’s workshop where mayhem ensues. With life-sized mechanical dolls, a quirky tale of mistaken identity, and luscious music, this comedic masterpiece is not to be missed.

New York City Ballet is one of the foremost dance companies in the world, with a roster of spectacular dancers and an unparalleled repertory. The Company was founded in 1948 by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein, and it quickly became world-renowned for its athletic and contemporary style. Jerome Robbins joined NYCB the following year and, with Balanchine, helped to build the astounding repertory and firmly establish the Company in New York.
