Love conquers all in Peter Wright’s world-class production of a joyous classic from the golden age of ballet – ‘a masterpiece’ (The Stage) brought back to the stage by Birmingham Royal Ballet for the first time in five years, with Léo Delibes’ glorious score performed live by the 60-piece Royal Ballet Sinfonia.

Swanilda and Franz are getting ready to marry during their hometown’s upcoming festival, just a few days away. When Franz finds his eye wandering towards the mysterious girl on Dr Coppélius’s balcony, Swanilda takes matters into her own hands – but can she steer her fiancé away from the Doctor’s mystery guest and back towards the path of true love? Don’t miss this magnificent production, back for a strictly limited tour in 2022.
