Take a trip to the toy shop – the magical one where dolls come alive in “Coppelia.” Adults and children alike are captivated by “Coppélia’s” mysterious toymaker Dr. Coppelius, life-size dancing dolls, and the festive wedding celebration. The ballet is memorable not only for its vivacious dancing but also for its music by French composer Léo Delibes.
