"Coppelia" is the comedy in which we can feel 19th-century ballet shaking off the Romanticism that had characterized the genre.

The New York Times

Closed 5 Jul 2014

Based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann (who also wrote the original The Nutcracker tale), Coppelia is a beautiful and incredibly life-like mechanical doll created by Dr Coppelius, which causes upset amongst the villagers by rousing the affections of Franz, who is engaged to Swanilda.

The comedic ballet was first performed in Paris in 1870 and is one of the world's most popular ballets today. A production by the American Ballet Theatre of Coppelia is a regular highlight on their calendar, and one which will be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
