Coppelia is a comic ballet for all ages. We follow the story of Dr. Coppelius, an eccentric toy maker, and his mechanical dolls. His favorite doll is called Coppelia. Dr. Coppelius tries to make Coppelia come to life with magic, but all seems to fail. He eventually places Coppelia on a seat on the balcony to dry. It is then when Franz, a village boy, becomes infatuated with Coppelia, thinking that she must be a real girl and not just a doll. His fiancée, Swanhilda, sees Franz looking at Coppelia and becomes very upset with him. After sneaking into the toyshop, Swanhilda soon learns that Coppelia is actually just a doll that belongs to Dr. Coppelius. He helps Swanhilda impersonate the doll, in order to win the love of Franz. Franz first things that the doll has come to life but later understand the trick. In the end, they forgive one another and laugh about the mistaken identities. Franz and Swanhilda get married in the village with a big celebration where all of the boys and girls of the village come to cheer in a grand finale.
