Albuquerque Journal Theatre

This 691-seat proscenium theatre is the centerpiece of the REDCPA, integrating the latest in theatre design with unique and stunning aesthetics.

The flowing curves of the interior construction contribute to the state-of-the-art acoustics of this venue. The Journal Theatre also is equipped with an orchestra pit and an orchestra shell, which, like a band shell or small amphitheatre, provides optimal sound quality for symphonic and acoustic music. Artisan features include the unique doors and marquees, executed in burned copper by Federico Armijo of Cubero, New Mexico, and reflected in the copper mesh acoustic panels inside the theatre.

With over 1,700 square feet of performance area, the stage of the Albuquerque Journal Theatre is one of the largest indoor stages in New Mexico. The stage floor, of red oak stained black, has rubber pads between the framing and the concrete beneath, giving it the resiliency needed for dance performances. The fly system, used for raising and lowering sets as well as hanging stage drapery and housing the roof of the orchestra shell, has 46 lines, with 26 available for general use, allowing for rapid changes of elaborate scenery. At 85 feet on the exterior, the fly loft also creates the high point of the pyramid shape that is the central element of the building’s architecture.

Three levels of seating—orchestra, mezzanine, and balcony—accommodate audiences for the wide variety of productions staged in this venue.

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque Presents Estévez/Paños y Compañía: El Sombrero

June 13
Albuquerque Journal Theatre 1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

8 pm

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque 33 proudly presents El Sombrero, the new fantasy by Estévez/Paños y Compañía. This new production is inspired by the creative process of a key work in the history of Spanish ballet: The Tricorner Hat. From the creators: “The first idea of the Russian businessman Sergei Diaghilev was to create Le tricorne only with flamenco dancers (bailaores and bailaoras), but in the end, this first Spanish ballet turned out to be an encounter and a collaboration. It was created by Léonide Massine and the flamenco dancer Felix Fernández García played a great part in it. His role was fundamental in the staging of the show, the outcome being the meeting of flamenco dance and Spanish dances with classical ballet technique. Thus, flamenco art is placed within the framework of the avant-garde, captivating artists that were most ahead of their time.”

Winner of the Premio National de Danza 2019, U.S. Premiere.
