Festival Ballet Albuquerque and the National Hispanic Cultural Center presents an original production, Nutcracker in the Land of Enchantment. 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 western Victorian-era costumes. The 13th anniversary year includes Zozobra, in a 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, Music Director of the Santa Fe Symphony, and an internationally renowned conductor and violinist who was a 2012 Latin Grammy nominee.

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