A new staging of Petit's chic and stylish masterwork
Master of modern ballet Roland Petit created an entirely new Coppélia with his boldly innovative staging and choreography. Petit's version, whose theme is life and love transcending the ages, demonstrates that the unique humor and stylish tricks familiar to New National Theatre audiences from Roland Petit's La Chauve-souris are alive and well. Look forward to the moving and unforgettable finale.


Coppelius is an aging dandy who looks good in a frock coat. He is infatuated with the much younger Swanilda, but Swanilda has eyes only for her lover Franz, and merely toys with Coppelius. In Coppelius's lonely lodgings there is a doll that looks exactly like Swanilda. If only one day something would breathe life into the doll and turn it into a human being....
