An imaginative and comedic classical ballet, "Coppelia" tells the story of young lovers Franz and Swanilda, whose romance is threatened by a mysterious doll maker and his life-size creation, Coppelia. When local villager Franz falls under Coppelia's spell, Swanilda must prove his foolish infatuation false by pretending to be the doll. The acclaimed Kirov Ballet of Russia brings E.T.A. Hoffmann's magical tale to life in this filmed performance.
