  • This delightful ballet tells the story of Dr Coppelius, an eccentric toymaker, who attempts to bring life to his beautiful doll Coppélia. He is foiled by the mischievous Swanilda, who masquerades as Coppélia and saves her love, Franz, from the Doctor’s magic. Recorded live at Sydney Opera House, this acclaimed production by Dame Peggy van Praagh, the founding Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, is a triumph. Brilliantly directed by George Ogilvie, Coppélia captures the imagination with its dramatic edge and visual charm.


"This Coppélia is a traditional ballet from start to finish and one that is timeless in the way of all the best-loved fairytales." Sunday Telegraph
