About Scottish Ballet: Coppélia

What does it mean to be human in a world of artificial intelligence? Scottish Ballet presents its most ambitious production yet – a jaw-dropping, contemporary rework of Coppélia that took the Edinburgh International Festival by storm, wowing critics and audiences alike. This thrilling new version of the ballet, which tells the story of Silicon Valley’s hottest new inventor Dr Coppelius and his latest AI creation ‘Coppélia’, is choreographed and directed by UK-based duo Morgann Runacre-Temple and Jessica Wright, building on their previous award-winning film works for Scottish Ballet, Tremble and The Secret Theatre. Expect trademark humour, with sharp, witty solos, beautiful pas de deux and exhilarating full ensemble scenes paired with cinematic live projections. The original Delibes score is reimagined as part of an extraordinary new composition by Mikael Karlsson and Michael P Atkinson, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra. Breaking down the boundaries of dance, theatre and film, this pioneering new adaptation will warp audiences’ sense of reality, leaving them wondering what is real and what is artificial, as they are lured into Dr Coppelius’ world of robots and clones. Special note: Children under 5 years will not be admitted.
