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.
