Disney in Concert: Pirates of the Caribbean

The San Antonio Symphony picks up where German film composer Klaus Badelt (and uncredited film composer Hans Zimmer) left off when he co-wrote the score for director Gore Verbinski’s 2003 adventure fantasy Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The Disney in Concert event will feature the symphony performing on stage as the original (and best) film of the swashbuckling movie franchise screens simultaneously behind them. The film stars Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, an eccentric pirate who teams up with blacksmith Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) to save a governor’s daughter (Keira Knightley) from an immortal ship captain (Geoffrey Rush) and reclaim a golden medallion that can break an evil curse. For his Keith Richards-inspired performance, Depp was nominated for an Academy Award, although the seemingly sloshed character would wear out its welcome in the subsequent four sequels. Black Pearl also earned Oscar nods for makeup, sound mixing, sound editing and visual effects. Before the concert starts, we recommend you order something with rum at the bar to get into full pirate mode. Yo, ho, ho, scallywags!

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
