Innovative family feature Coppelia combines enchanting animation and live action dance in a modern retelling of the love story between Swan and Franz, jeopardised by Dr. Coppelius and his uncannily beautiful protégée Coppelia.

With a diverse and world-class cast including Michaela DePrince, Daniel Camargo, Vito Mazzeo and Dame Darcey Bussell, DBE, the unconventional adaptation sees Dr. Coppelius (Mazzeo) as a cosmetic surgeon, whose lure of superficial beauty poisons the town. Swan (DePrince) must uncover the truth about the popular newcomer who puts her community and the life of her beloved Franz (Daniel Camargo) in danger.

Modern and fast paced, the film features a blend of musical influences from classical to electronic, bringing the story to life like never before. As the townspeople come to learn, in the age of social media and an increasingly image conscious culture – it’s never been more important to be yourself.

All screenings of Coppelia are relaxed screenings.

    threat and horror

    There are brief scenes of very mild fantasy threat in which the heroes are cornered and captured by animated robots and later escape from a collapsing building. In other scenes the villain persuades unsuspecting people to undergo fantastical medical procedures which leave them brainwashed. The film focuses on the bravery and kindness of the heroine and her friends, and the ending is reassuring.

    People visit an evil plastic surgeon in hopes of becoming ‘beautiful’; the heroine is never tempted, however, and the message of the film is that beauty comes from within.
