Coppélia features the ground-breaking production and choreography of Roland Petit and was first brought to life by the Ballet National de Marseille in 1975. Whereas Coppélias performed around the world until that time had been stuck in a 19th-century style, this production brought the timeless themes of life and love to the fore, giving the characters the feel of our time. Petit's own brilliant performance as Dr. Coppélius was one of his masterpieces, still talked about today. The unique humour and chic French taste featured on this stage, there is a memorable ending that will leave you engrossed, with a message that won't fade with repeat viewing.
