Join the Mankato Pre-Professional Performing Company as they dance the full-length ballet “Coppélia” on Sunday, March 8 at State Street Theater in New Ulm, MN for this family-friendly performance.
As George Balanchine put it, “Just as Giselle is ballet’s great tragedy, so “Coppélia” is its great comedy.” The ballet is an obvious deviation from Romantic ballets, which featured ethereal figures like sylphs and wilis, long tulle dresses for costumes (later known as Romantic tutus), and tragic endings. In contrast, “Coppélia” features human characters (that is, apart from Dr. Coppélius’s dolls), vibrant costumes, and ends with a happily ever after.
Performance starts at 2 p.m. at State Street Theater, 1 North State Street, New Ulm, MN. Handicap parking and entrance are available on Washington Street, through our backstage entrance.
Make sure to get your tickets early before they sell out! Tickets for the performance are $12 adults and $9 students for children ages 3-12 and can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, Hy-Vee, and online at statestreetnewulm.org. Pre-sale tickets will be available through Friday, March 7. Tickets will also be available on the day of the event for $15 adults and $10 students for children ages 3-12.
