A bit of cultured post today. Don't play play ah. Ini makcik can like something highbrow like ballet performances as much as she likes running, tau!
I like romantic. The boys probably will like the comic part. So, what's not to like? Furthermore, a full cast of 48 which includes dancers and performers from USA, Australia, Germany, Romania and our very own Malaysian! Woweee!
And this ballet performance piqued my interest after seeing photos of Tristupe's daughter ballet rehearsal & performance over at FB and some that he tweeted. Dedicated bunheads. *smile* Great timing knowing about this show! ^^
The story of Coppelia revolves around Franz and Swanhilda who are two promised lovers and Coppelia which (who?) is the mannequin creation of Dr. Coppelius’s mystical workshop.
She sits on the balcony everyday and Franz becomes enchanted by her beauty, much to Swanhilda’s dismay. Cannot blame Swanhilda lah, right?
A cacophony of mischief takes place in the mystical workshop when Swanhilda and her friends sneak into the workshop, Franz climbs through the window and Dr Coppelius returns. Surprises unfold and true love is united.
Interesting right? Sounds fun too! True love will prevail!
It's going to be showcased next week, on Saturday and Sunday.
Wish I can go. Must do something cultured and not be a philistine, you know.
