BRB are bringing their GORGEOUS Coppelia to Norfolk Virginia next spring.

Coppélia

Birmingham Royal Ballet

Friday, April 19 7:30 PM

Saturday, April 20 7:30 PM

Sunday, April 21 2:30 PM

Chrysler Hall, Norfolk

Tickets $65 Gold Circle, $50, $35, $20

The production is by Peter Wright and quite the best Coppelia I've seen. Eye candy. Beautiful unapologetically classical ballet. If you're anywhere near Norfolk, I highly recommend it!

I'm not sure if this is Maureya Lebowitz' debut in role with BRB but the other dancers are already established in the roles. Terrific casts. I think it's one of Carole-Ann Millar's best roles.
