Who is the strange, beautiful girl who appears one day on the balcony of Dr Coppelius’s house? No one is more intrigued than lively local girl Swanilda. But eccentric Dr Coppelius is secretly a toy maker; and the mysterious girl is his havourite creation, a mechanical doll called Coppelia. As the characters gather inside his fantastical toy factory, the toy maker’s ultimate dream comes true and Coppelia comes to life… or does she. Coppelia is a wonderful love story, peopled with great characters and laces with enchanting humour. Peter Wright’s gorgeous production to Delibes melodious score is a real family treat.
