English National Ballet brings Coppélia staged and choreographed by one of the greatest English choreographers Ronald Hynd after Marius Petipa. One of the most popular repertoire of ENB, It is an enchanting, family ballet perfect for audiences of all ages.

Considered to be "the last romantic ballet", Coppélia was based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffmann's fairy tale "The Sandman". The colorful music written by Léo Delibes is also attractive with a lot of folkloric melodies such as mazurka, czardas, bolero and jigue.


Swanilda is engaged to Franz, but he has his eye on the mysterious girl sitting on the balcony of Dr. Coppelius' house. Franz doesn't realise that she is a doll whom the toymaker is trying to bring to life and when Swanilda and her friends sneak into the Doctor's workshop it looks as though he has succeeded. Love triumphs over all in this comedy of mistaken identity and the finale is a joyful celebration of the lovers' wedding.
