Ballet Taos presents THE NUTCRACKER: A NEW MEXICO NUTCRACKER
December 22, 2017 7:00 PM
Location: Taos Community Auditorium

 

Ballet Taos performs an original, vibrant rendition of the holiday ballet classic “The Nutcracker." “A New Mexico Nutcracker” takes place in the thriving art colony of Taos, New Mexico around the turn of the twentieth century.

Mabel Dodge Lujan, Maria (the daughter of a Chile Farmer) and historical Taos characters gather to celebrate the spirit of Christmas. After a lively evening of gifts and dance, Maria’s dream begins. Taos Mesa comes to life with a surreal battle between nature's desert creatures. Lead by the Hawk Kachina and Coyote King, the creatures are given a choice of red chile, green chile or Christmas. Peace is restored as snow begins to fall on Taos Mountain. With her Hawk Kachina by her side, Maria emerges as the lovely Butterfly Kachina and travels across the beautiful Northern New Mexico landscape. Snowflakes, Flamenco dancers, a hoop dancer from Taos Pueblo, and Georgia O’Keeffe flowers are just a few breathtaking scenes Maria experiences along the way.

In this powerful coming of age tale, images of landscape paintings from the original Taos Society of Artists and living Taos artists fill each backdrop. Take a leap back in time and celebrate the art, diverse culture and history that makes our community truly unique.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for youth 17 and under, with the exception of December 24th, with all tickets at $20 general admission for the 2pm and 7pm performances.
