Live from Moscow, the Bolshoi Ballet opens its doors to global audiences through cinema. Featuring some of the ballet world's greatest names, Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema has been shot especially for the big screen, providing viewers with a unique opportunity to experience the wonders of the Bolshoi Ballet.

Swanhilda notices her fiancee Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppelia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppelia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson.

The Bolshoi's unique version of Coppelia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fiancee with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. the company's stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous "dance of the hours," and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.

Rated G (all audiences). Run time: 2 hours and 45 minutes.
