    DANCE KALEIDOSCOPE 2014- SA Met's 30th Anniversary Performance

    • San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet presents “Rappacinni’s Daughter” –one act ballet based on short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This story is a Romeo and Juliet type tale with some interesting twists.

    A garden of poisonous flowers and enchanted suitors created by alchemist Rappacinni to protect his daughter Beatrice from the outside world. Newcomer to the city, Giovanni, sees Beatrice and finds a way to enter the garden.

    The original story ends tragically with the poisoning of Beatrice, however, SA Met has an alternative ending which allows the two lovers to live as the old scientist falls victim to his own creation.

    Ticket holders are encouraged to email sconnally@sametballet.org, with ticket seat numbers for verification, and vote on choice of endings: A- Original ending, or. B- New ending, The votes will be tallied and the outcome performed on April 26th at the 2:30 pm show at the Carver.

    The special 30th anniversary show also showcases several contemporary works to include:


    “Jazz Swing” by Fernando Bujones, “Filii Dei” by Harrison McEldowny, and (3) new emerging choreography works by Jodi Trevino….”The Front” , Samantha Ayala….Pointes for Mozart”, and Andrea Sola……”Single Silhouette”. Guest Artists include Laura and Joey Villalobos, Brian Teeters and more.

      San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet’s spring showcase, “Dance Kaleidoscope,” is always packed with goodies and the 2014 version, presented April 26 at the Carver Community Cultural Center, was no exception. If anything, there was even more to see and enjoy than usual.

      Given that the group is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, artistic director Susan Connally and associate director Karin Heiden decided to offer a mix of old and new works, plus a number of pieces featuring several guest artists.
