“A New Mexico Nutcracker” is a restaging of the original ballet “The Nutcracker” which integrates the diverse cultures, history, and beauty of Northern New Mexico. Set in 20th century Taos, historical figures, such as Mabel Dodge Lujan, grace the stage to tell the story of a young girl’s coming of age. Professional ballet dancers, Flamenco dancers, Mariachi musicians, Hoop dancers from Taos Pueblo, gymnasts, aerialists and accomplished actors will be performing alongside young dancers and artists from our community to create a ballet that is uniquely Taos. This annual production, preformed every December, will bring together an audience of all ages to enjoy and to educate our community about the art of dance and to explore the history and cultural roots of Taos. Please come and share your talents with us.
