San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet and YOSA present a powerful collaboration in celebration of San Antonio’s Tricentennial. This performance will include a variety of music and dance selections that resonate with the city’s rich cultural heritage. The concert will feature Karin Heiden’s ballet, “For Those Left Behind,” in honor of the men and women in military service and their families. The ballet is set to Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, featuring a classical Spanish guitar soloist and showcases a Spanish-themed courtyard festival prior soldiers’ departure to war. This classical ballet is an interpretation of a community’s support for its soldiers and the emotional struggles of four couples.
