Albuquerque Journal Theatre

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.

Chispa: NM Jazz Latino Orchestra, From the Beginning

January 13, 2018
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

8 pm

The first half of the New Mexico Jazz Latino Orchestra’s latest offering, From the Beginning, celebrates the music written by and associated with the great Dizzy Gillespie. The featured artist, Bobby Shew on trumpet, is an international jazz star and a personal friend of Mr. Gillespie. Joining Mr. Shew is tenor saxophonist Doug Lawrence, who toured with Mr. Gillespie and his band in the 1980s; master Cuban musician César Bauvallet, who performed with Mr. Gillespie when he travelled to Havana on the 1970s, leads the rhythm section on congas.

The second half of the show features a tribute to the great Chabuca Granda, widely considered Peru’s most legendary singer. NMJLO performs Ms. Granda’s music in the “Salsa Criolla” style, in which salsa and jazz musicians present a blend of salsa repertoire with Afro‐Peruvian festejo backgrounds, synchronizing these two popular musical styles with traditional instrumentation to provide a blend of ancestral and contemporary tones. This year NMJLO is proud to present, directly from Lima, Peru, Tito Manrique. Mr. Manrique is a Salsa Criolla guitarist, composer, and arranger who enjoys immense popularity throughout South America, and who will bring with him brand new arrangements of music associated with Ms. Granda. Joining Mr. Manrique are brilliant vocalist Jackie Zamora (also from Lima) and César Bauvallet on trombone.
