Manassas Ballet Theatre's Tribute To a Solider

October 30, 2014

Mark Wolfe, executive director of Virginia’s Manassas Ballet Theatre, and his wife Amy, artistic director, have choreographed and produced a ballet as a tribute to their son, Colin. A lifelong ballet dancer, he lost his life serving in Iraq. Wolfe collaborated with composer Mark Menza to create a 27-minute piece, which she is expanding into a full-length production, to premiere on Veteran’s Day. In an interview with the Washington Post, Wolfe said she views the ballet as a gift from Colin to anyone experiencing loss, helping them find peace. CBS News “Sunday Morning” will air a story about the ballet this Sunday, November 2 at 9:00 a.m. ET.
