December 2018

Film: Mi Gran Noche/My Big Night

7 pm

This “instant camp classic” is set in a TV studio, where the advance taping of a New Year’s Eve special is fraught with difficulties. A crane falls on an extra; there are riots and protests outside the studio; a hunky singer is being blackmailed by two girl-crush fans; an aging crooner is targeted for assassination by his adopted son and manager; and two extras fall in love, even though the woman seems to be a bad-luck charm. “A manic farce of schlubs and monsters, professional one-upsmanship and assassination.” Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
2015; Álex de la Iglesia; Spanish with English subtitles; 100 minutes; not rated.
Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

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

Now in its 8th 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.

Opera Southwest presents Astor Piazzolla’s María de Buenos Aires, a fully-staged opera with orchestra, sung in Spanish with both English and Spanish translation supertitles, and presented in two acts with one intermission.

OSW is thrilled to present Piazzolla’s only opera in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The story goes that his surrealist depiction of the titular Maria’s sleepwalk through violence, death, the afterlife, and rebirth was composed entirely on the bandoneón. The opera effortlessly weaves classical contrapuntal techniques together with milongas, cabarets, and mid-century jazz for a thrilling dance through the underbelly of Buenos Aires. Anthony Barrese conducts.
$15, $29, $45, $59, $75, $89; discounts for groups of ten or more and patrons 30 and younger
