What happens when you fall in love with a machine? How can we compete with the perfection of the unreal? What if the technology we create, and obsess over, takes on a life of its own?

Production shot

What does it mean to be human in a world of artificial intelligence?

We will test the boundaries of dance, theatre and film in this distinctive new adaptation of the classic ballet, blending location and real-time filming with projection and live performance.

This innovative new production will be choreographed and directed by UK-based duo Jess & Morgs. Building on their previous films for Scottish Ballet (Tremble, The Secret Theatre), Jess & Morgs will explore our relationship with reality through their playful use of the camera, creating a unique experience for a live theatre audience.

The original Delibes score will be referenced and reimagined as part of a new composition by Mikael Karlsson and Michael P. Atkinson, performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

Coppélia has been commissioned by the Edinburgh International Festival and will have its world premiere in 2022, followed by a national tour.

Enhance your experience of Coppelia with a pre-show talk on Fri 23 Sep.

Attending on Fri 23? Stay on after the performance to join members of our artistic team and dancers for a free 20 minute Q&A session.
