FUND A BALLET FOR THE FUTURE
The telephone. The television. Dolly the Sheep. Scotland has always been at the forefront of new technology, changing the course of history. This year, Scottish Ballet is changing the course of dance in a world first, a distinctive new version of the classical ballet, Coppélia — crafted by Scotland.
It’s been 30 years since Scottish Ballet first toured Coppélia. The original ballet, based on 19th century automata, was radical for its time. Now, in this fourth ballet of our ambitious Five in Five Campaign to create five new full length works in five years, we are carrying Coppélia’s spirit into the 21st century.
Scottish Ballet’s new Coppélia will blend location and real-time filming with projection and live performance in ways that will immerse you in a world of fantasy and hyper-reality. Directed and choreographed by Morgann Runacre-Temple and Jessica Wright (The Secret Theatre, Tremble), this version of Coppélia is so revolutionary that its blended multiple artforms requires one of the largest creative teams Scottish Ballet has ever assembled including projection and video directors, designers, dramaturgy, and written text specialists.
