Libretto by Giorgio Madia freely based on the story by E. T. A. Hoffman

“In my version Coppelius will be young. I am not turning him into a dark character. He is very passionate about his research and the audience will be able to suffer with him when the girls destroy the treasures of his lab. He represents a mad element of a human personality that is driven by a romantic or sexual obsession or perhaps the lack of a natural sense of love. All in all, he is just looking for companion.”
Giorgio Madia, choreographer of the performance
 
The comic ballet Coppélia is one of the most popular titles in a classical repertoire. It is inspired by the story by E. T. Hoffmann, a German writer, who is now considered to be one of the creators of the horror and fantasy literary genres. The main character of the story, Coppélius, is a mischievous designer of mechanical toys, intruding into the lives of a lovely couple Franz and Swanilda with his seductive mechanical doll Coppélia which came to life.
 
The Italian choreographer Giorgio Madia has significantly changed the role of the main character. In his version, Coppélius is not simply a negative figure; he makes the audience sympathise with him.
 
Madia blends neo-classical ballet technique with a visually sophisticated staging that along with his lighting design and an imaginative scene designed by the Italian set and costume designer Domenico Franchi shifts the production toward dramatically scenic visual art and promises a charming and extraordinary spectacle.
