In time for Valentine’s weekend, a pair of local arts institutions are performing perhaps the greatest love story of all time. We stopped by Ballet San Antonio’s practice space to speak with San Antonio Symphony’s Associate Conductor Akiko Fujimoto.
“The symphony will be performing with Ballet San Antonio Prokofiev’s great ballet Romeo and Juliet. Prokofiev has a great way of depicting both romance and tragedy, which are the two key ingredients of the story of Romeo and Juliet.”
She says the composer has interesting ways of taking hold of your emotions.
