It is 1878, and in the small German settlement of Hahndorf, South Australia, Doctor Coppélius arrives to establish his new practice. Swanilda is jealous of her sweetheart Franz’s interest in Doctor Coppélius’ mysterious ‘daughter’, so she sneaks into his house to confront her rival. But all is not as it seems – and when the doctor discovers Franz is yet another intruder, delightful mayhem follows.
Set to the charming music of Léo Delibes, this much-loved Romantic classic, joyously refreshed by choreographer Greg Horsman has something for all the family.
Approximate running time: 2 hours 20 minutes.
