Franz is Swanhilda’s foil, and Vitor Luiz makes for a winning, boyish Franz. As charming as the lithe Luiz is, though, he dances with a verve that tips into excess force, leading to anarchic jumps and unstable landings, like a puppy that hasn’t synced up all its talented extremities. He is also uncertain in partner lifts. For some of us in the audience, this was nerve wracking. Like a screwball comedy, “Coppélia” turns on a strong female lead, dances through mistaken identity and farce and ends with a marriage. In Act 1 the plot is set: The town is to celebrate the arrival of new bells with a festival. Stalks of wheat are distributed, and superstition decrees that young women who have wheat seeds that rattle will be loved by their men, and soon married. Coppélia’s is silent; so she knows Franz prefers the startling, stationary beauty often seen on Dr. Coppelius’ balcony.
