Coppelia" is a classic masterpiece of French ballet, which is popular with both Russian ballet, represented by "Swan Lake" and French ballet, based on the original story by E.T.A. Hoffman, about a young man who falls in love with an automaton and the commotion that ensues. The composer, Dreve, was active mainly in Paris, where he gained popularity by composing familiar operettas and ballet music. Anselme, the "god of ballet music," gives a superb performance, knowing exactly what is needed for the stage.
