Royal Ballet: Coppélia
The Royal Ballet presents Ninette de Valois’ comic ballet as part of their 2019-2020 season, captured live on the London stage.
"Toy maker Dr Coppélius seems to have a beautiful young woman in his house: Coppélia, who sits and reads on his balcony. Franz and his fellow young villagers are curious about her and how she ignores them all. Franz’s fiancée Swanilda is not pleased by Franz’s interest in another woman, but equally curious. When Dr Coppélius goes to the local tavern, the young villagers slip into his house to introduce themselves to the strangely silent young woman." (Royal Opera House)
