classical ballet in 3 acts

music: Leo Delibes

choreography:  Stanislav Tchassov after Petipa

The ballet interweaves the romance between Swanhilda and Franz with the story of the doll-maker Coppelius, whose greatest desire is to create a doll with a soul.

Franz falls in love with Coppelius’ doll Coppelia, whom he thinks is alive. He finally recognises that she is just a doll and returns to Swanhilda, after which the sparkling grand divertissement sees everyone reconciled.

Full of humour and exciting Hungarian dances such as ‘Czardas’ and ‘Mazurka’ the ballet has beautiful scenery and handcrafted costumes, and is a total delight and great entertainment for all ages.

Early booking is recommended.
