This sunny classic ballet, brought to life in Allen Fields’ production, will enchant the
whole family with its lively story set in a tiny village a century or so ago. Spunky
Swanilda loves Franz, but he falls for a beautiful mechanical doll made by the
reclusive toymaker Dr. Coppélius. When Coppélius captures Franz, Swanilda
poses as the doll to free Franz from the toy workshop where he is held captive.
Spirited villagers dance. An experiment explodes. Toys whirl out of control. The
entire village turns out for a wedding. Village maidens tuck the no-longer-reclusive
Dr. Coppélius into their festive dance.
