Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment

December 14, 2018 - December 16, 2018

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
