Navidad: A Mexican-American Christmas, by Calpulli Mexican Dance Company @ Thalia Spanish Theatre | New York | United States

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company presents an original, limited-run holiday production, “NAVIDAD: A Mexican-American Christmas” at Thalia Spanish Theatre in Sunnyside, Queens, from November 30 to December 16, 2018, The new production celebrates the holiday traditions experienced by a young person of Mexican immigrant parents growing up in New York City. From Aztec-inspired dance to Christmas carols, the youngster tries to bring their two worlds together. In a dream, they imagine the fusion of Mariachi music with Tchaikovsky, folk dance with ballet, and the wonderment of their two cultures. The program, with 16 dancers and core of musicians led by Calpulli’s Music Director George Saenz, tells a story with commissioned works by Mexican and Mexican-American guest choreographers with new musical arrangements and original works.

The Nutcracker @ Kupferberg Center for the Arts

“The Nutcracker” is the perennial favorite of generations of children and “children at heart”. The treasured holiday adventure follows a little girl’s journey through a fantasy world of fairies, princes, toy soldiers, and an army of mice. Thrill to the same authentic Russian choreography that is performed in Moscow by the famous Bolshoi Ballet. Set to Tchaikovsky’s beloved music, including ” Waltz of the Flowers”, “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”, and “Waltz of the Snowflakes,” the entire family will love this magical experience filled with spectacular sets and beautiful costumes.
The annual visit of The State Ballet Theatre of Russia with 55 of Russia’s brightest ballet Stars, with its performance of “The Nutcracker” has become a tradition of the Burlington holiday Season.
