Hi, Kids Commuters, and welcome to Day Four of COPPELIA WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute!

This week, we've been listening to the story and music of the classic ballet Coppelia by French composer Léo Delibes.

Today - Swanhilda performs a daring rescue as Dr. Coppelius knocks Franz out with a sleeping potion and tries to steal his life force to put into the mechanical Coppelia doll!
