The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment

December 15, 2017 - December 17, 2017

7 pm—Friday & Saturday
2 pm—Saturday & Sunday

Festival Ballet Albuquerque, with choreography by Patricia Dickinson Wells, and full live orchestra under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, present The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment. This beloved holiday classic comes to life in the late 1800s in territorial New Mexico, with many surprises including Spanish and flamenco dancers, dancing southwestern snakes, sheep and shepherdesses, hummingbirds, a lively fandango, and a storyteller doll with children. Traditional favorites such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Snowflakes, and Flowers are also preserved in all their splendor, while beautiful sets, lavish western Victorian-era costumes in the first-act Party, and never-before-seen pyrotechnics in the Battle light up the stage in this all-new production. Resplendent with New Mexico heritage and traditions while maintaining the classical grace of its origins, The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment is the perfect holiday treat for the whole family!
$14, $20, $29, $38, $47 w/ $2 off for seniors, children and NHCC Members. Groups rates available.
