When everyone in town falls under the spell of charismatic plastic surgeon Doctor Coppelius, feisty Swan must take action to save her sweetheart Franz, before his heart is used to spark life into Coppelia - the ‘perfect’ robot-woman the Doctor has created.
True beauty comes from within... The central theme of the film carries an important and timely message for young girls and boys. Coppelia is a universal tale with a strong female heroine.
Coppelia was first made into a ballet in 1870, based on two tales by E.T.A. Hoffmann. Our film is inspired by Ted Brandsen's updated and acclaimed production for Dutch National Ballet.
