COPEELIA - THE STORY.... HOW WE WILL PRESENT IT.
Act I – The Village
Act II – The Doll Shop
Swanhilda and her friends are now in the shop where Dr. Coppelius makes his creations. They are amazed at all the life sized dolls they see and wind them up to watch them dance. Looking for Coppelia, they notice a curtain leading towards the window. Once revealed, the find Coppelia. She will not respond to the girls and finally they realize she too is just a doll. Suddenly they hear someone coming and hide in the shop. Frantz now enters looking for the girl he saw in the window. Without warning Dr. Coppelius returns looking for his key and sees the door to his shop open. He enters to find Frantz in the shop. He gets an idea that maybe he can get Frantz drunk and use his magic to take his spirit and transfer it to Coppleia and make her a live person, the daughter he always wanted. Swanhilda tricks Dr. Coppelius into believing his plan is working but he is left to discover that it was not. Suddenly horns are heard signifying the marriages of all engaged couples is about to take place. Swanhilda shows herself to Frantz and Dr. Coppelius as they see that Coppleia is just a doll and always will be. Frantz wins Swanhilda’s trust back and they leave to get married. Swanhilda’s friends now appear and set the dolls crazy. Soon they are chased out of the shop by Dr. Coppelius and he is left to clean up the mess of his shop left by the intruders.
Act III – The Village/Wedding
The entire Village is prepping to attend the festival and also to celebrate the wedding of Swanhilda and Frantz. The ceremonies start with the Dance of the Hours. Dawn, Prayer and Spinner dance to celebrate the start of the new life of the couple with many joys, riches, happiness and love. All friends join together to celebrate the commitment of Swanhilda and Frantz and watch them live Happily Ever After!
