Living doll?

Broadcast live to the Edge Arts Centre on Tuesday 10 December from the Royal Opera House, ‘Coppelia’ is a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’ delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole company.

Toy maker Dr Coppélius seems to have a beautiful young woman in his house, Coppélia, who sits and reads on his balcony. Franz and his fellow young villagers are curious about her and how she ignores them all. When Dr Coppélius goes to the local tavern, the young villagers slip into his house to introduce themselves to the strangely silent young woman – whatever could her mysterious secret be?

Osbert Lancaster’s designs bring a colourful storybook world to life in this Christmas treat for the whole family. The screening is at 7.15pm and tickets are priced from £11; for further details call 03336 663366 or visit edgeartscentre.com.
