Royal Ballet Live: Coppelia

Royal Ballet Live: Coppelia

Musical Barry Wordsworth conducts a live broadcast from the Royal Opera House in London of Ninette de Valois' amusing ballet of mechanical dolls and mischief set to Leo Delibes' fleet-footed score, which is constructed on the firm foundations of Marius Petipa and Enrico Cecchetti's original choreography. Swanilda is madly in love with Franz but she becomes irritated with her beau when she catches him staring adoringly at the daughter of their neighbour, the eccentric and sinister toymaker Dr Coppelius.
