Dance performance based on Der Sandmann (1816) by E.T.A. Hoffmann, story of Nathanael, a university student in an Italian town, where a scientist named Spallanzani built a mechanical doll called Olimpia. Nathanael sees Olimpia, thinks that she's a woman and falls in love with her. A day Nathanael arrives at Spallanzani's house unexpectedly and the sight of Olimpia's eyes lying on the ground drives him to madness. Nathanael is taken to an asylum and when he's fully recovered, he starts seeing his ex-girlfriend Klara again. Some time later, while watching the city from the tower of the town hall, Nathaniel thinks that Klara is an automaton and goes insane again. In the crowd that gathers below Coppelius (one friend of Nathanael's father that he has always hated) appears, and upon seeing him Nathanael leaps over the railing to his death.
