Festival Ballet Albuquerque presents this comedy ballet about a young maiden, Swanhilda, and her fickle fiancé, Franz.

Franz, on the eve of his wedding day, becomes infatuated with the allusive Coppelia. Rumored to be the daughter of the mysterious toymaker, Dr. Coppelius, but unbeknownst to Franz, Coppelia is actually a life-sized doll! The villagers present beautiful dances and preparations for the lavish wedding. Complete with beautiful costumes, delightful music and exciting dancing by professionals and pre-professional dance artists, the comedic story comes alive with a splendid cast under the direction of Patricia Dickinson Wells.
