The Australian Ballet's The Fairy Tale series comes to the big screen, starting Autumn 2016
Swanilda and her merry boyfriend Franz live in a village with Dr Coppelius, a sinister magician and inventor who has created a beautiful doll that he sits on his balcony. One day Franz sees the doll, Coppelia, and becomes infatuated with her. Swanilda and her friends decide to explore Dr Coppelius' house while he is out to see who the mysterious woman is, but he returns suddenly and Swanilda hides - pretending to be Coppelia. At the same time, the love struck Franz finds a ladder and climbs into Dr Coppelius' house, who plans to steal his life force to animate his doll, pours Frank a drink with a sleeping draught in it. When Franz passes out, Coppelius brings out Coppelia so Swanilda pretends to be a doll coming to life. Coppelius is delighted - until Swanilda manages to wake Franz and they escape from the house and are married, sealing their love with a tender pas de deux. Sorcery and masquerade, romance and high jinks - this is the funniest, sunniest ballet you'll see all year.
