Presented by the West Australian Ballet, a co-production with Queensland Ballet
A beautiful, life-like doll and two bickering young lovers create comic chaos in this captivating ballet.
Coppélia is one of the most frequently performed and well-loved comic ballets around the globe.
As George Balanchine put it, "Just as Giselle is ballet’s great tragedy, so Coppélia is its great comedy."
Jealous of her sweetheart Franz’s interest in Doctor Coppélius' mysterious "daughter", Swanilda sneaks into his house to confront her rival.
But all is not as it seems – and when the doctor discovers Franz is another intruder, delightful mayhem follows.
Setting the much-loved story in the small South Australian town of Hahndorf in the late 19th century, choreographer Greg Horsman has created a touching and witty ballet, with endearing characters inspired by our own history.
With its joyful dance and the charming music of Léo Delibes brought to life by West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Coppélia will enchant people of all ages.
