The well known dance classic,
Coppelia
A contemporary interpretation of the much loved ballet originally choreographed by Arthur St Leon to the music of Leo Delibes, based on Hoffman's Tale.

A young girl’s fiancé, Franz, falls for Coppelia, an image created by Dr Coppelius. Not to be defeated, the resourceful girl, Swanhilda takes the place of the Image and with her friends, creates havoc in Coppelius studio. She opens Franz's eyes to the world of pretense and falsehood that he has been deceived by. All ends well with the lovers reunited and a happy wedding feast is celebrated by the whole village dancing.

Choreographed by Jane Pirani.
