Hannah Mae Cruddas Dances in Coppélia with Ballet Jörgen & Symphony Nova Scotia April 12-14, 2019.

Hannah Mae Cruddas performs one of the world’s oldest and best-loved ballets live in Halifax with Symphony Nova Scotia and Canada’s Ballet Jörgen! Coppélia tells the funny, fantastical tale of an eccentric toymaker and his greatest creation – a beautiful dancing doll so lifelike that it causes an uproar in its small village.
