About

A SPARKLING TALE OF MAGIC AND MISCHIEF

Coppélia has everything a good story ballet should: a touch of enchantment, a dash of romance and masses of sumptuous costumes.

Swanilda and Franz are in love until the appearance of Dr Coppelius and his mysterious daughter Coppélia upset the celebrations. However, Dr Coppelius’ haughty daughter is not what she seems, and Swanilda must rescue Franz from the magician’s sinister doll-filled lair. With the help of some fancy footwork, Swanilda manages to wake Franz and they escape from the house and are married, sealing their love with a tender pas de deux.

Sorcery and masquerade, romance and high jinks – this is the funniest, sunniest ballet you’ll see all year.
