Dr. Coppelius

A lady with a lap-dog.

Recommended Posts

I just borrowed the VHS tape from a friend of mine (unfortunately I had no time yet to give it a deeper look).

This tape is a release from 2000 of the 1976 ballet-film from "Ekran" (51 minutes).

The ballet is based on a short story by Anton Chekhov, music by Rodion Shedrin, choreography by Maya Plisetskaya.

It is performed by Maya and B. Yefimov.

Once I have seen it, I'll try to give a brief summary - unfortunately these days I am very short of time.


P.S.: For the original story have a look on
