Performed for the first time in 1870 at the Opéra de Paris to the splendid music of Léo Delibes, Coppélia is a masterpiece in the world ballet repertoire. There have been many choreographic versions of this title, documented at La Scala since the end of the nineteenth century. Its most recent production for the La Scala Ballet dates back to 2009, but the new Season will open a new chapter in its history, which bears the eminent signature of Alexei Ratmansky.
One of the most sought-after choreographers of our time, he honours La Scala and its Corps de Ballet with the world premiere of a new Coppélia, thus reaffirming his long and stimulating collaboration with our Theatre and its Ballet Company. Featuring completely new scenes and costumes signed by Jérôme Kaplan, Ratmansky’s creative sensitivity and vision of this historic ballet will greatly enrich the Ballet Company’s repertory.
