Coppelia: Ballet by Delibes G. Stepanenko (Swanilda), V. Taranda (Coppelius), A. Malykhin (Frantz) - Bolshoi Theatre 1987

This production is a very lighthearted one with Doctor Coppelius portrayed as a Drosselmeyer type character. In the second act, during the scene in his workshop, he helps Swanhilde make Franz realise how foolish he was for falling in love with a doll. And in the final act the toymaker helps organise the village festivities and produces his doll for the amusement of the local children. It looks to me like the production was done by the Bolshoi Ballet Academy. There are many younger dancers, especially in the third act.

It is available from Opus TV through the Brightcove site as a download rental or purchase to watch on your computer with Windows Media Player. Opus TV
