Coppélia is one of the greatest comedic ballets in existence, presenting a delightful tale of budding romance alongside the curious contraptions of an eccentric inventor. Infatuated at the sight of Dr. Coppélius’s new doll, Frantz evades his darling Swanilda and sneaks into the inventor’s workshop where mayhem ensues. With a bright and luscious score by Delibes and dazzling sets and costumes, Coppélia will captivate both newcomers and balletomanes alike.
