Coppélia tells the tale of the mysterious and diabolical inventor Doctor Coppelius who has created a life sized dancing doll named Coppelia. A doll so lifelike that Franz becomes infatuated with her beauty, much to the dismay of his fiancée Swanhilda.
Jealous of his new love and curious about this new girl, Swanhilda and her friends sneak into Dr. Coppelius's house to discover his secrets.
