Coppelia will have a very limited run at The London Coliseum, London from 15th to 18th March.
What’s at the heart of a woman? Eccentric toymaker Dr. Coppelius wants to know and he is planning to bring his mechanical doll, Coppelia, to life – he just needs the right spell.
When Dr. Coppelius leaves Coppelia on his workshop balcony she causes quite a stir in the village. Particularly in the heart of red-blooded young lover Franz and the jealous mind of his real-life fiancee Swanilda – who has mistaken the mannequin for a crying, talking, sleeping, walking rival.
With a wild mix of abracadabra and some mischievous maidens, comic chaos is riotously unleashed when humans and automatons collide in Dr. Coppelius’s spooky toyshop. Peter Wright’s enchanting family friendly production of this joyous and witty ballet is an ever-popular celebration of love, with a sparkling score and breathtaking choreography.
