Nutcracker in the Land of Enchantment

December 20December 22

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 Ballet in the Land of Enchantment.  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, and lavish western Victorian-era costumes. Now in its seventh year at the NHCC, the production showcases New Mexico heritage and traditions while maintaining the classical grace and family appeal of its origins.  A live orchestra performs under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, former music director of the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra and an internationally renowned conductor and violinist who was a 2012 Latin Grammy nominee.

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

Thank you to our Performing Arts Season Sponsors Heritage Hotels and Resorts, the Albuquerque Journal and Southwest Airlines!
