December 14December 16
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

7 pm—Friday, Saturday & Sunday
2 pm—Saturday & 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, choreographed by Patricia Dickinson Wells. 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 Victorian-era western costumes. 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. Purchase tickets early—last year’s performances sold out!
$14, $20, $29, $38, $47 w/ $2 off for seniors, children and NHCC Members. Group rates available

The world premiere choreographic masterpieces to be presented, highlighting both tradition and innovation in the world of flamenco, were created for Yjastros by artists at the global forefront of the art form during their residencies in the University of New Mexico’s Dance Program. Yjastros 34 will be premiered in Dallas, TX, home of the Orchestra of New Spain, in February 2019. The Orchestra of New Spain, founded in 1989, is a professional period-instrument baroque orchestra and chorus specializing in, but not limited to, the music of Spain and its sphere of New World influence. Daniel Doña, dancer and choreographer from Granada, has led his own company, Daniel Doña Compañía de Danza, since 2004, and is considered one of the top exponents of current Spanish dance.

Revolutions International Theatre Festival: Migrant Songs

March 28, 2019March 29, 2019
7:30 pm 

Migrant Songs is a choral piece based on stories of migration, both human and non-human. Specifically, the project explores the relationship between the songs of human and bird migration, through oral interviews gathering stories and songs from migrants who currently live in the Albuquerque area and research and field recordings of birds in northern New Mexico, and bringing the songs of migrants into inter-species dialogue through the creation of a choir performance. The work highlights the stories and songs that cut across different migration histories, tying Hispanic culture in historic and contemporary relationships to Asian, African, and Middle Eastern culture within the New Mexican context.
