The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment
Shows at 2 p.m. & 7 p.m. Festival Ballet Albuquerque, with choreography by Patricia Dickinson Wells, and The Figueroa Project, with live music under the baton of Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, present The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment. This beloved holiday classic comes to life in the late 1800s in territorial New Mexico, with many surprises including Spanish dancers, southwestern snakes, sheep and shepherdesses, a lively fandango, and a storyteller doll with children, in addition to traditional favorites such as the Sugar Plum Fairy (Julie Cobble of NYC), Snowflakes, and Flowers. Beautiful sets, lavish western Victorian-era costumes, and never-before-seen pyrotechnics in the Battle light up the stage in this all-new production. Resplendent with New Mexico heritage and traditions while maintaining the classical grace of its origins, The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment is the perfect holiday treat for the whole family!
