Ballet’s most charming comedy, live on stage: The Australian Ballet’s Regional Tour presents Coppélia. Swanilda and Franz are in love … until a beautiful stranger, the daughter of the magician Dr Coppelius, appears in town. But she is not what she seems, and Swanilda must rescue Franz from the magician’s sinister workshop – with the help of some fancy footwork!
This sparkling tale of magic and mischief, with its irresistible melodies and ‘living dolls’, is amusing fun for the whole family. Inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s stories, Coppélia features exquisite costumes by master designer Kristian Fredrikson. Laughter and love, lively dancing and vivid colour – treat the family to Coppélia. Cost: $29 – $65.
