What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - Coppélia
EXTRA PERFORMANCE NOW ADDED! TUE 14 JUN, 7.30PM.
Magic, mayhem and the original living doll.
What’s at the heart of a woman? Eccentric toymaker Dr Coppélius wants to know, and he’s
planning to bring his mechanical doll, Coppélia, to life – he just needs the right spell.
When Dr Coppélius leaves Coppélia on his workshop balcony she’s soon causing quite a stir in the village. Particularly in the heart of redblooded young lover Franz, and the jealous mind of his real-life fiancée, Swanilda – who’s mistaken the mannequin for a crying, talking, sleeping, walking rival.
With a wild mix of abracadabra, and some mischievous maidens, comic chaos is riotously
unleashed when humans and automatons collide in Dr Coppélius’s spooky toyshop. Peter
Wright’s enchanting production of this joyous and witty ballet is an ever-popular celebration of love, with a sparkling score and breathtaking choreography. Coppélia is guaranteed to lift the hearts of all the family.
