A captivating classic comical tale for the whole family!

A mysterious inventor, Doctor Coppélius, has made a life-size dancing doll that is so lifelike that Franz, a village youth, is infatuated with it. He sets aside his true heart’s desire, Swanhilda, who shows him his folly by dressing as the doll and pretending to come to life. Based upon two stories by E.T.A. Hoffmann, Coppélia was originally choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon, with music by Léo Delibes. This family-friendly production is staged by Salwa Rizkalla and features renowned guest artists in the lead roles.
