A beloved comic ballet for generations, Coppélia is the story of how a life-size dancing doll, a mysterious inventor, a zesty heroine and her true love all cross paths. Brought to life with exuberant dancing by MBC’s highly acclaimed, pre-professional dancers from the greater Philadelphia region, this light-hearted and magical story ballet will delight children of all ages.

Special guest artists Melissa Gelfin, a soloist with Cincinnati Ballet and Peter Weil, a dancer with Pennsylvania Ballet, both Jenkintown natives and MBC alumni, will appear in the leading roles of Swanhilda and Franz.  Sergey Pupyrev, a former Principal dancer with the Russian State Ballet in Moscow and Metropolitan Ballet Academy faculty member will star as Doctor Coppelius.
