Coppélia Reviews


Such a successful production of Coppelia performed at the Elgiva Theatre, Chesham on 29 September which could not have been possible without the support and goodwill from all members of the theatre and the hard work from the children.


Below are comments sent through from parents of children involved in this production.







Good Morning Bridget

What can I say.  What an absolute delight it was to see the show. I knew it would be good but it surpassed my expectations. Eden I know had a fantastic time. Please can you pass on my heartfelt thanks to Trevor, Victoria and the rest of the team. If you plan to do any more please can you let us know.

Best wishes, Spring



Dear Bridget and Victoria,

Sorry this is a bit belated but I just wanted to say congratulations for the successful production of Coppélia it was thoroughly enjoyable to watch.

I am so grateful to you that you do the work you do, so that Isis ( and many other children!) get to experience this.

Isis enjoyed it and got a lot through performing in it.

I also wanted to let you know how much she is enjoying Saturday mornings. She really enjoys working with both of you and  loves the happy, friendly atmosphere that you create. She always comes out bubbling and happy.

So the biggest thank-you to you both,

Hi there Bridget and Victoria

Just a quick email to congratulate you on such a wonderful ballet of Coppelia on Sunday.

The performances from all the girls were fantastic and the set and the costumes effective and colourful.  It was good to see all the girls so in character in all of their dances and they all looked like they loved the whole experience.

Tabitha has had a great few weeks with you and has certainly enjoyed improving her pointe and of course getting to know the rest of the team from Orbital Arts including the other girls who came across as very professional and friendly.

Thank you for offering her this great opportunity and hope to see you again in the future.

Best wishes from, Sara and Tabitha x




I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Orbital arts that were involved in the production of Coppelia.

My daughter, Anna, had a fantastic experience, quoting her words: " This is the best ballet show I've ever done!" Amazing choreography, beautiful set and costumes , some talented kids and all of you behind the scene working hard and created this magical  and very entertaining event.  It was also lovely to see such a  friendly and supportive atmosphere between all the participants.

Thank you again for all your hard work and please keep us informed about your future projects.

Best wishes, Oksana and Anna



Dear Bridget and Victoria

What an amazing show you put on last night! It was fabulous!I was so impressed with everything - the beautiful dancing, amazing costumes - but mostly I just loved the smiles on all the dancers faces.

They seemed to be enjoying every minute.

I hope you were able to enjoy it too after all your hard work. Grace has come such a long way in the past year since dancing with you. Her confidence as a dancer has grown massively but she's also learning that she can achieve so much more than she believes which is such a great life lesson.

So thank you both!  She was so lucky to be part of the Coppelia team and is going to miss it so much!  I hope you can get some well earned rest this week.

Best wishes, Dorothy



Dear Victoria and Bridget,

Thank you for the amazing experience you gave to all the girls. Eloise and Hettie have learnt so much from you.

I was so proud of all the girls yesterday, it really was an amazing performance.

I hope to meet you again.

Many thanks, Karen




Thank you for the  wonderful performance of Coppelia ! It was lovely, I ended up watching both shows! Emmy loved being part of it and she was very inspired watching the older dancers!



Dear Bridget, Victoria, Trevor and Annie

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to write and thank you all for the incredible two performances of Coppelia. I was blown away as were my mother, Maude's Austrian godmother, my nephew and his German girlfriend not forgetting the Freudenberg entourage! It was just incredible. I know how much hard work and at times anxiety and frustration must have gone into it!

We were all SO impressed.

Watch this space for a future production by Orbital Arts of either The Nutcracker or Wind in the Willows.
