As I write this, it’s the official first day of autumn. That means leaves turning, shorter daylight and a new social calendar. The Louisville Ballet’s first production of the season is a classic ballet with a Louisville twist. The setting has been moved to Germantown in 1917. This change comes by way of Robert Curran, the Ballet’s artistic and executive director, who says, “I have dreamt of this production for so many years. ‘Coppelia’ has so many levels and rich details, and the rich history of Louisville has delivered the perfect setting to bring this story to life in a new and vibrant way.” Many local artists are involved. The set design is by Jacob Heustis, with hats by milliner Sarah Havens and dolls by craftsperson Allison Anderson.
