The Australian Ballet Regional Tour


Presented by The Australian Ballet in association with Darwin Festival 

The Australian Ballet returns to Darwin with a performance full of laughter and love, lively dancing and vivid colour. Coppélia is a sparkling tale of magic and mischief and a perfect Festival event for the whole family.

Swanilda and Franz are in love, that is until a beautiful stranger, the daughter of the magician Dr Coppelius, appears in town. But she is not what she seems, and Swanilda must rescue Franz from the magician’s sinister workshop – with the help of some fancy footwork!

Inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s stories, Coppélia features exquisite costumes by master designer Kristian Fredrikson, irresistible melodies and dolls that come to life.
