Ninety students, preschool through high school age, strove mightily to meet the challenging choreography by Zhanna Sinitsyna, particularly succeeding with the mime and staying in character, thus advancing the story, set in a small European village, admirably. It's a festival; everyone is in colorful clothing. This story particularly involves Swanhilda, her fiancé Franz and a mysterious "girl" on a balcony, who throws kisses to Franz. Jan. 23, Callie Webster portrayed Swanhilda with just the right verve. Laura Hockemeyer made Coppelia believably mechanical. Guest artist Roman Nikiforov gave Franz the right bewilderment, and guest artist Martin Cassanova brought a distinguished performance to Dr. Coppelius. Costumes, sound design and set design were praiseworthy.
