Featuring a company of professionally trained performers from locales as multifarious as Brazil, Russia, Hungary, and Japan, Columbia Classical Ballet prides itself on presenting vibrant, classical ballet performances. Send your own or a bottle of contained spirits soaring with a production of Victor Hugo's classic tale of love, selflessness, and blinding jealously, viewed from the orchestra or grand-tier balcony section. The orchestra section features wheelchair access, and the grand-tier seats are ideal for theatergoers craving a bird's-eye view of the action or a chance to utilize their Day-Glo binoculars.
The Carolina Ballet brings to life the sentimental comic ballet Coppelia, with original choreography by Arthur Saint-Léon and music by Léo Delibes. Based on E.T.A. Hoffman's tale "The Sandman," the 140-year-old ballet tells the story a village girl who pretends to take the place of Coppelia, a life-size dancing toy doll, in order to win back the bewitched heart of her true love and favorite corn-dog vendor.
