THE ALBERT E. & BIRDIE W. EINSTEIN FUND
PRESENTS BOCA BALLET THEATRE’S PRODUCTION OF COPPÉLIA
Boca Raton – We are excited to announce that The Albert E. & Birdie W. Einstein Fund will be presenting Coppélia. They have been supporters of Boca Ballet Theatre for many years and it is always a joy and a privilege to have them involved. Coppélia, a family favorite, is a farcical comedy about a boy, a girl, another girl who’s not really a girl but a doll, and an eccentric doll-maker who attempts to bring his beautiful doll Coppélia to life. This fun ballet launched Boca Ballet Theatre in 1991 and is choreographed by Dan Guin with music by Leo Delibes and will feature Nicole Muratov with Ballet De Bordeaux in France, and Jared Matthews principal with Houston Ballet, who perform with the talented dancers of Boca Ballet Theatre’s summer intensive program.
Nicole Muratov began her serious ballet training at the age of 12 at Boca Ballet Theatre. Ms. Muratov performed many roles in the various ballets a BBT. Both classical and contemporary, including Clara in The Nutcracker and Myrtha in Giselle. She was accepted to the prestigious Elmhurst School in association with Birmingham Royal Ballet where she continued her training until her graduation in 2010. Ms. Muratov accepted a position at Ballet de l’Opera National de Bordeaux in France where she has had the opportunity to tour Europe and China. We are thrilled to have Nicole back with us as Swanhilda in Coppélia.
Jared Matthews was born in Houston and received his early ballet training there under the guidance of Victoria Vittum and Gilbert Rome. He was awarded a full scholarship to study at North Carolina School of the Arts summer program as well as the School of American Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. Mr. Matthews joined American Ballet Theatre as an apprentice in 2002 and as a member of the corps de ballet in 2003. He was appointed a Soloist in 2007. Mr. Matthews joined Houston Ballet as a first soloist in 2014, and was promoted to the rank of principal dancer in 2015. Mr. Matthews performed with us as the dashing Cavalier in The Nutcracker and we are overjoyed to welcome him back as Franz in Coppélia.
