Nutcracker in the Land of Enchantment

December 17, 2021December 19, 2021

7 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 2 pm Saturday and Sunday

Festival Ballet Albuquerque is partnering with the National Hispanic Cultural Center to present an original production, The Nutcracker 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, Mr. Coyote, Ms. Roadrunner, and lavish western Victorian-era costumes. This tenth anniversary year will see the addition of Zozobra, with the production showcasing 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, Principal Conductor of the Santa Fe Symphony and an internationally renowned conductor and violinist who was a 2012 Latin Grammy nominee.

$49, $39, $29, $20, $14 w/ $2 discount for seniors, children12 and younger, and NHCC members
