When everyone in town falls under the spell of charismatic cosmetic surgeon Doctor Coppelius, feisty Swan must act to save her sweetheart Franz, before his heart is used to spark life into Coppelia – the “perfect” robot-woman the Doctor has created.
Coppelia is a visually opulent fairytale that blends live action ballet with charming animation. In this playful reimagining of the original ballet, the magical Doctor Coppelius casts a spell that enchants the entire town.
The cast is comprised of acclaimed ballet dancers from around the world, with Michaela DePrince in the leading role as Swan. Michaela’s celebrity stems not only from her work as a ballerina, but also as a writer, model and War Child ambassador. Also featured in the cast are several local stars, including current San Francisco Ballet soloist Sasha Mukhamedov and former SFB principal Vito Mazzeo.
Michaela DePrince will be in attendance at the Cowell for a post screening Q&A with Mina Kim
