Ballet: Coppelia


After a sold-out season in their hometown, the Cape Town City Ballet brings their lavish production of Coppelia to Durban for five shows.

The enchanting, whimsical ballet is delightful fun for the whole family with live musical accompaniment provided by the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Naum Rosine. Based on the comic fable by ETA Hoffman, Coppélia is a light-hearted ballet of romance, intrigue and mistaken identity. South Africa’s top balletic duo, Laura Bosenberg and Thomas Thorne, feature in the lead roles of Swanilda and Franz and alternate with Elizabeth Nienaber and Celeste George (Swanilda) and Ivan Boonzaaier and Alexander Vivian-Riding (Franz).
