COPPÆ’LIA by Margot--Adapt Fonteyn


Email this review


The timeless tale of romance, suspicion, magic, and revenge is freshly retold, focusing on the feelings and actions of the characters: Dr. CoppÆ’lius as he comes to terms with his artistic gifts and broken dreams; Swanilda as she mischievously attempts to find the ""daughter"" of Dr. CoppÆ’lius; and Franz as he falls foolishly in love with a doll, but repents and wins Swanilda. The textured paintings--oil painting lavished across nubby tweeds, lace, brocades, and other fabric--highlight the events of this unforgettable story, sure to send balletomanes off in search of the nearest production of the ballet.
