Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida presents “Coppelia”.

Miami, Fl. Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida, one of South Florida’s most acclaimed ballet companies, will present the third program of the season with the delightful and lovely ballet comedy:”Coppelia”. It will run March 5th -6th at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center, and March 12th -13th at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts at the Amaturo Theater.

Coppelia is considered one of the most famous ballets of the classical repertoire. Vladimir Issaev’s version, based on the original work by Arthur Saint Leon is presented as a dynamic and entertaining ballet that will awe audience of all ages and allow everyone to enjoy it in a very unique way.

Issaev will keep the elements of the piece which are traditional ballet, character dance and pantomime, but adding the very peculiar humor and freshness of his works, which is already a trend in his choreographies. The original version was released on May 25, 1870 at the Paris Opera. It tells the story of Doctor Coppélius, a mysterious and absent minded inventor who created a mechanic life-size dancing doll: Coppelia. It is so lifelike that Franz (Daniel Sarabia or Hernan Montenegro), a village youth, is mesmerized by her beauty and is determined to attract her attention setting aside his true love, Swanhilda (Mary Carmen Catoya or Lillian Hill). She shows Frank his folly by dressing as the doll, pretending to make it come to life and ultimately saving him from an untimely end at the hands of the inventor.

Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida will have the participation of more than 20 professional dancers. The most advanced students of Vladimir Issaev School of Classical Ballet have been invited to perform along the professional dancers of the company.

Coppelia will feature the debut of talented Cuban dancer Daniel Sarabia, who is joining Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida and sharing his extensive experience with the company. Having graduated from the National Ballet School of Cuba, Sarabia has been part of the Boston Ballet Company, The Béjart Ballet Lausanne (Switzerland), and was principal dancer of Miami City Ballet. He has also been in major productions dancing principal roles in Latin America, Asia and Europe.

Coppelia will be presented March 5 & 6 at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center and March 12 & 13 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
