Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Coppélia

Author(s): Delibes, reimagined by Mikael Karlsson and Michael P Atkinson
Company: Scottish Ballet
Running time: 1h 10min approx

What does it mean to be human in a world of artificial intelligence? What happens when you fall in love with a machine? How can we compete with the perfection of the unreal? What if the technology we create, and obsess over, takes on a life of its own?

This innovative new production will be choreographed and directed by UK-based duo Jess and Morgs. Building on their previous shows for Scottish Ballet (Tremble, The Secret Theatre), Jess and Morgs will explore our relationship with reality through their playful use of the camera.

The original Delibes score will be referenced and reimagined as part of a new composition by Mikael Karlsson and Michael P Atkinson, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
