Swanhilda notices her fiancé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours”, and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humour in this effervescent production.
