BalletForte, Fort Bend County’s pre-professional ballet company, presents the light-hearted and timeless ballet, “Coppélia,” April 6-7 at the Stafford Centre. Coppélia, one of the most frequently performed and well-loved comic ballets, is a story of a young couple in love and their battle between idealism and realism. If you love romantic comedies, you’re going to love “Coppélia!” Directed by Michael Banigan and Dianne Jarrell, BalletForte provides a training ground and professional quality performance opportunities for serious dancers from the Houston area.
