Enjoy the magical journey of music, dance and storytelling with A&A Ballet’s upcoming performance of the famous Coppélia and the world premiere ballet of Sleepover at the Museum! Lose yourself in the beauty and comedy of a classical ballet that Arthur Saint-Leon first premiered in 1870. Hailed by Mikhail Baryshnikov as “one of the most beautiful ballet scores”, Coppelia showcases classical ballet in its best form. Entertaining and technically capturing, the ballet is a perfect fit for the entire family and is recommended for ages 4+.
