FREE Queensland Ballet Performance: Coppélia

Following the storyline of E.T.A. Hoffmann's, Coppélia, this performance will showcase the budding romance between two villagers, Franz and Swanilda, alongside the curious workings of their eccentric neighbour Dr Coppélius. Infatuated at the sight of the Doctor's mysterious 'daughter' Franz sneaks into Dr Coppélius' workshop and delightful mayhem follows.

Enjoy this stunning classical rendition while listening to the skilled musicians of the Queensland's Chamber Orchestra. This is a must see for all ages.
