About

The Royal Ballet are on top form in this magical family favourite.

Toy maker Dr Coppélius (Gary Avis) seems to have a beautiful young woman in his house: Coppélia (Ashley Dean), who sits and reads on his balcony. Franz (Vadim Muntagirov) and his fellow young villagers are curious about her and how she ignores them all. Franz’s fiancée Swanilda (Marianela Nuñez) is not pleased by Franz’s interest in another woman, but equally curious. When Dr Coppélius goes to the local tavern, the young villagers slip into his house to introduce themselves to the strangely silent young woman but are met with a house full of mechanical dolls and, seemingly, magic…

A classic returns to The Royal Ballet repertory with Ninette de Valois’s charming and funny Coppélia – a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’s delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole Company. Osbert Lancaster’s designs bring a colourful storybook world to life in this Christmas treat for the whole family.

“A simple story, a ravishing score, story-book … and a feast of dancing.” – Financial Times *****

“... this revival of Ninette de Valois’s 1954 production, danced for the first time in nearly 14 years and set in Osbert Lancaster’s colourful world of embroidered aprons, red-heeled boots and the occasional tutu, has an energy all of its own.” – The Independent ****

“A charming departure from Christmas ballet clichés... You’ll leave with a smile on your face.”
– Time Out ****

“Crisp dance and sharp comedy make their mark...” – The Evening Standard ****
