Coppelia Blu-ray (The Royal Ballet) 2019

A classic returns to the Royal Ballet repertory with Ninette de Valois' charming and funny Coppélia - a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes' delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole Company. With Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov in the lead roles and the incomparable Gary Avis as the put-upon Doctor Coppélius, this is a treat for all lovers of traditional ballet.

"This revival of Ninette de Valois’s 1954 production... has an energy all of its own." The Independent

"Crisp dance and sharp comedy make their mark." The Evening Standard

On Núñez: "Every shrug, every pout, every stamp of the foot is a masterclass in verismo and she renders the most complex mime passages instantly intelligible." The Financial Times

"Muntagirov showed unsuspected comic flair as Franz... His double-take on first spotting Coppélia earned a big laugh while his airborne Act Three variations won gasps and giggles of delight." The Financial Times

Coppelia quel délice!

Je suis en amour avec le ballet, mais surtout le ballet "joyeux". Ce ballet est l'un des plus joyeux que je connaisse. Quand j'entends l'air de la "mazurka", j'ai le goût de danser ou encore de jouer au chef d'orchestre. Marianella Nunez est formidable, tout le corps de ballet est formidable, Vadim Muntagirov est extraordinaire (comme d'habitude) mais plus comédien que dans d'autres ballets je trouve. Gary Avis est un danseur et mime génial. Je l'adore. Quel beau danseur et acteur combiné! Chapeau à l'Orchestre du Royal Opera House. Bravo pour la conception des décors et des costumes. Toujours impeccables!

Coppélia

I have five productions of Coppélia in my collection and The Royal Ballet's recent offering is the best of the lot. It's a great story, very funny, and the music is delightful. It was just a given that Marianela Nunez and Vadim Muntagirov were going to be brilliant, but Gary Avis had more fun playing Dr. Coppelius than humans ought to be allowed to have. The whole production was simply outstanding and will repay multiple watchings. Don't miss this one!!
