  • Category: Music & Theatre
  • Dates: Saturday, 05 April 2014 to Sunday, 25 May 2014

If you've ever wanted to introduce your children to the ballet but have been disappointed by the lack of age-appropriate shows, the My First Ballet scheme could be the very performance you have been waiting for.

Starting in London and hosted by none other than the English National Ballet School at the beautiful Peacock Theatre, the enchanting story of Coppelia choreographed by George Williamson will be performed this spring.

This witty tale is known throughout the world, about an inventor who creates a doll so life-like that the village swain Franz falls so madly in love with her that he neglects his true heart's desire Swanhilde.

All ends well though when she dresses as the doll to show him his mistakes and they head off to get married, just as the protagonists should in all good fairy tales.

Adults can expect melodic and memorable tunes along with outstanding dance and choreography, while children will be captivated by the fantastic story that has been written with them in mind.

Kids aged three and above are sure to love the comedic take on the fairy tale, which is staged in a way that combines all the elements of classical ballet, with plenty in the way of arabesques and pirouettes. 

Tickets cost £26 and can be obtained over the internet or by calling the box office either by phone or in person. The Peacock Theatre is located on Kingsway, although the entrance can be found on the adjacent Portugal Street.

Book yourself and your youngsters into The Chesterfield Mayfair, which is conveniently located around 20 minutes away by public transport.

Make the most out of your time in London and go with the 3 Nights For The Price Of 2 package, which gives you a third night in any room including the Dormer Suite, Duchess Suite and Stanhope Suite absolutely free.
