COLIN: Son, Marine Hero
May 20, 2018 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Manassas Ballet Theatre closes our 2017-18 season with an original and very personal ballet, Colin: Son, Marine, Hero. MBT is proud to once again present this full-length ballet, showcasing the story of Artistic Director Amy Grant Wolfe’s son Colin, who lost his life in Iraq to a roadside bomb in 2006. Colin debuted in November 2014 after Wolfe expanded her original one-act ballet, gathering inspiration by interviewing Colin’s commander and fellow Marines during the summer of 2014 and adding new layers to the original heart of the story. Colin continues to evolve for this season’s presentation as Wolfe incorporates new ideas to further enhance the story. The Manassas Ballet Theatre Orchestra will perform the original score by acclaimed composer Mark Menza at the award-winning Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas. This performance will touch not only the ballet-loving patron but anyone who has known service and loss.
