School Day Event: The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment

December 15
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

10 am

Festival Ballet Albuquerque and the NHCC, with choreography by Patricia Dickinson Wells, 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!

La Canoa: Under the Canopy of the Cottonwoods of Alameda

December 16

2 pm

Dr. Jerry Gurule, Professor at the College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Spanish and Portuguese UNM will present us with a vivid look at the community of Alameda.

Join us on a journey of discovery of the community of Alameda explored through history and anecdotes. Alameda was vitally linked to the Río Grande that supplied the essence of life to it and its sister communities of Los Ranchos, Corrales and Sandía Pueblo. This is, in part, a visual journey of the past and present interwoven among the “alamos” of the area. These were communities filled with their share of rapscallions and heroes, but communities we fondly referred to as “mi gente,” a people with a deep appreciation of the space they occupied.
