Mayor Nutter is scheduled to perform Sunday afternoon with the Pennsylvania Ballet – a walk-on role, no dancing.
The ballet company announced Friday that Nutter would spend about 35 minutes onstage as “The Mayor” in "Coppelia", the story of a toymaker in a 19th century village who makes a doll and dreams that she will one day come to life.
The performance begins at 2 p.m. in the Academy of Music, at Broad and Locust streets. The ballet company said that Nutter would appear during Act 1, greeting villagers in the town square and announcing a festival.
