Mystery, intrigue, and a dancing life-sized doll contribute to the comedic charm of this ballet favorite

Follow the story of a nefarious doctor whose quest to transform a doll into the perfect woman creates a rift between two young lovers, and delight in a cunning plan that brings them back together again.

With ebullient choreography by our own Artistic Director Angel Corella and a lively and romantic score by Léo Delibes, this high-spirited production is one you’ll want to see again and again.

Based on a celebrated story by E.T.A Hoffmann, the fantasy, wit, and laugh-out-loud antics of Coppélia are sure to entice the entire family.
