Original "Little Red" goes back Into the Woods
Rehearsal video and interview with Danielle Ferland, who appeared in the original Broadway production of Into the Woods as Little Red—now returning as the Baker’s Wife in Mark Lamos’ co-production between CENTERSTAGE and Westport Country Playhouse.
Giuseppina Bozzacchi as Swanilda in the original Saint-Léon/Delibes production of the ballet Coppélia, which premiered in Paris in 1870. (The young dancer died of smallpox only about a year later). The ballet is based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s The Sandman, and bears some resemblance to elements in another of his stories that inspired The Nutcracker. The works of Hoffmann, and in particular the figure of the toymaker and his life-like mechanical dolls, are at the core of director Mark Lamos’ take on Sondheim’s Into the Woods, currently in rehearsal to open at CENTERSTAGE in Baltimore in a few weeks. Faint glimmers of Coppelia have appeared in some of the show choreography, to close the loop.
