Repetto - Coppélia

Repetto's Window

The ballet Coppélia is featured in the windows of Repetto on rue de la Paix.

The ballet was originally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon 
to the music of Léo Delibes and its premier performance 
was in 1870 at Théâtre Impérial de l'Opéra in Paris.

I am always drawn to this window on each visit to Paris 
and can hardly wait to see what the imaginative designers have created.

22, rue de la Paix
75002, Paris

It looks magical Genie. At midnight I'm sure the come to life.

Hello Genie,

One of us has a pair of Repetto shoes which will hopefully last for ever as they are so beautifully comfortable. They really do make one feel like dancing!

Coppelia is such a fun ballet. We saw it last season at the Opera House in Budapest starring our ballet friends in the cast.

The lights and reflections on the glass almost seem as they have been worked into the design.

M said...

Parfait! Joe is right, they do look like they are able to come to life and finish the dance!

Jeanie said...

I am simply enchanted!

William Kendall said...

It certainly looks magical.

Alexa said...

Love visiting this window with you, Genie—always at night for some reason. :~}

Randy said...

Nice display.

Joe and Marie, you are right. It does seem that the window is a stage performance.

Dear Jane and Lance, now how much would Oskar, Bunny, Teddy, and Blanche de B love to see Coppelia at the Budapest Opera!! Jane, you could wear your Repettos... wish I had a pair!

Revrunner, the crystal chandeliers add a beautiful elegance to the windows.

Randy, Jeannie, and William - It is magical and the details cause the observer to linger over every section.

Alexa, and we will go again... at night.

This is great. I admire the people who dress store windows. Many are quite talented. I was in a shopping center today and took a half dozen photos of store windows.
