Festival Ballet Albuquerque: Nutcracker in the Land of Enchantment

December 16, 2022 - December 18, 2022

7 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
2 pm Saturday and Sunday

Festival Ballet Albuquerque is partnering with the National Hispanic Cultural Center to present an original production, The Nutcracker in the Land of Enchantment choreographed by Patricia Dickinson Wells.

The beloved holiday classic is transported to territorial New Mexico in the late 1800s, with added elements of the state’s heritage and traditions including Spanish dancers, southwestern snakes, sheep and shepherdesses, a lively fandango, a storyteller doll with children, Mr. Coyote and Ms. Roadrunner and lavish western Victorian-era costumes.

In this 11th year, Zozobra is the newest character addition, with the production showcasing New Mexico heritage and traditions while maintaining the classical grace and family appeal of its origins. A live orchestra performs under the baton of David Felberg for 2022 in what has become an annual family holiday tradition.

$49, $39, $29, $20, $14 w/ $2 discount for seniors, kids 12 and younger and NHCC members
