A beautiful, life-like doll and two bickering young lovers create comic chaos in this captivating ballet.
Jealous of her sweetheart Franz’s interest in Doctor Coppélius’s mysterious ‘daughter’, Swanilda sneaks into his house to confront her rival. But all is not as it seems – and when the doctor discovers Franz is another intruder, delightful mayhem follows.
Setting the much-loved story in the small South Australian town of Hahndorf in the late 19th century, choreographer Greg Horsman has created a touching and witty ballet, with endearing characters inspired by our own history. With its joyful dance and the charming music of Léo Delibes, Coppélia will enchant people of all ages.
