[ARCHIVED] City Teaming Up With BAHBT as Part of New Public Arts Initiative

Coppelia 21 web promo

As part of League City’s new Public Art Initiative, League City is teaming up with the Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre (BAHBT) to enhance cultural awareness and enrichment in our community through the performing arts. Founded in 1976, BAHBT strives to make the performing arts accessible through educational programs, collaborative projects, and interactive experiences, while providing a tutelage for aspiring artists in the Houston Bay Area. The company produces a season each year, which includes an eclectic array of classical ballet and contemporary dance under the direction of Artistic Director Nelson Madrigal, a former principal dancer with the National Ballet of Cuba and the Boston Ballet.

Coppelia October 8-10

BAHBT's 2021-22 season includes Coppélia —a comedic ballet about Doctor Coppélius, a fanatical dollmaker who creates Coppélia to be his companion and secretly dreams of discovering a way of bringing her to life. Performances of this family-friendly ballet run October 8-9 at the Bayou Theater at the University of Houston Clear Lake. Before each afternoon performance, children can come and enjoy a tea party with their favorite doll or stuffed animal from 12 to 1:30—complete with goodies and a meet and greet with the dancers. There will be a photo booth and League City will be there with special swag and treats. You can make your reservations now for the tea party and purchase tickets to the ballet at https://www.bahbt.org/coppelia.
