Show Info

English National Ballet and English National Ballet School present

My First Ballet: Coppélia tells the comic family tale of an eccentric toymaker and his mechanical doll in a beautifully adapted version for young audiences.

Watch the trailer.

Dr Coppélius, the toymaker, has created the lifelike Coppélia doll, and wishes for nothing more than to bring her to life. He thinks that his dream has finally come true, but he has merely been caught up in a lovers' tiff. Love triumphs over all in this comedy of mistaken identity and the finale is a breathtaking celebration of the lovers' marriage.

Delibes's irresistibly melodic score is accompanied with narration to ensure that everyone enjoys this classic fairy tale. My First Ballet: Coppélia is choreographed by George Williamson, English National Ballet’s Associate Artist, after by Ronald Hynd.

The My First Ballet series brings young audiences their first taste of ballet through the magic of fairy tales, captivating music and beautiful dance. The ballets are danced by second year students of English National Ballet School in performances produced by English National Ballet.
