The Latin Ballet of Virginia is presenting a new original work “VICTOR, the True Spriit of Love,” inspired by the true story of Victor Torres. As a teen from Puerto Rico, his family moved to Brooklyn, New York in the early 1960s where he lived the life of a young gang member. The love and faith of his mother helped turn his life around and today he runs a rehabilitation center with his family here in Richmond.
Victor stopped by our WCVE Music studios to chat with me about his life story and the amazing dance interpretation created by the Latin Ballet. Performances are Friday evening at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.
I hope you enjoy our chat!
Yours in good music,
Classical Music Host, WCVE Music
