Coppelia combines enchanting animation and live action dance in a modern retelling of this classic ballet.
When everyone in town falls under the spell of charismatic plastic surgeon Doctor Coppelius, feisty Swan must act to save her sweetheart Franz, before his heart is used to spark life into Coppelia – the ‘perfect’ robot-woman the Doctor has created. Through Swan’s quest to uncover the truth about the charismatic doctor, the townspeople come to learn that in an increasingly image conscious culture – it’s never been more important to be yourself.
