Current Season

Presented by the North Star Ballet: Coppélia March 27-29, 2015

Coppélia is a comedy ballet telling of the love of a young girl, Swanilda, and her fiancé, Franz, and how their love is nearly broken up by a life-size doll named Coppélia.  The story is set in a picturesque village in Central Europe at harvest time and in the strange workshop of Dr.Coppélius, the town’s most mysterious character and the creator of Coppélia. The old Doctor’s dream of bringing his wooden figure to life is played out when Swanilda and her friends invade his workshop and Swanilda poses as Coppélia.

The show is at the Lee H. Salisbury Theater on UAF’s campus.

The Ashgirl, by Timberlake Wertenbaker

In a big old house Ashgirl lives huddled deep in the protection of an ashy hearth. With her mother dead, and her father away, she lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters. When the invitation to the ball arrives from the prince, Ashgirl finds the strength to go with the help of her friends, some of whom come from unexpected places.

This retelling of the classic Cinderella fairy tale is “like a mix of C.S. Lewis and Sondheim’s Into the Woods: an eclectic fairy tale anthology.” (The Guardian, London)
