Coeppellia - Ballet Repertory Theatre Performance


 Ballet Repertory Theatre Coppelia  Huntington Beach, CA

Ballet Repertory Theatre proudly presents "COPPELIA". In this tale of Doctor Coppelius, an eccentric toymaker, who creates a doll that is so lifelike many refuse to believe that she is not real, a dedicated class of students, and renown choreographer Anthony Sellars will be featured. Making his professional debut in the role of the Nutcracker Prince with the New York City Ballet, Sellars also held the male lead in the NBC special "Hansel and Gretel." Studying and touring throughout Europe, the Master Teacher is in constant demand throughout the nation, but  his heart tugs him back as Artistic Director of Ballet Repertory Theatre.


Another unique talent in the Ballet Repertory Theatre is Terri Hayes, the former protege of Sellars.  The two are married  but Hayes is also known for her performances with American Ballet Theatre and Joffrey Ballet in New York City. Selected "Miss Dance of America," she studied under luminaries Mme. Pereyslavec, Leon Danielian, Meredith Baylis and Robert Joffrey. She continues to dance and garners critical acclaim in her Nutcracker performances.


About Coeppellia: As a young couple argues over the doll, the comical twists and turns that follow provide perfect family entertainment. As a special treat, Anthony Sellars will be performing the whimsical role of Doctor Coppelius and Christopher Sellars, guest artist from Ballet West, will be dancing the role of Franz.
