New Mexico Ballet Company
Performing two to three times a year at Pope Joy Hall, this troupe of professional dancers brings culture to the Albuquerque area. Whenever the company puts on a performance of The Nutcracker in December, tickets are highly sought after. The artistic director, Patricia Dickinson, works hard to assure that only the highest quality shows are brought to stage by this group that was formed in 1972. Past performances include classics such as, 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' and 'A Christmas Carol', as well as numerous contemporary productions.
I have seen the Nutcracker several times in past years and I have to say this was the best performance I've seen from the New Mexico Ballet Company yet. The costumes were amazing and the dancers showed talent of professionals. I would highly recommend seeing the NMBC Nutcracker during the holiday season.
The music was outstanding, but the dancers gave a dismal performance. Dancers were out of synch with each other and the music--leaps were completely off; cues to be onstage were missed, and one of the male dancers kept coming close to dropping his partner several times. The costumes and sets were decent.
The experience was excruciating; we almost left during intermission but since we'd paid ~$30/ticket we stayed. At least the 2nd half was slightly better than the first.
No standing ovation at end and conductor received largest and longest applause which I think shows the overall opinion of the audience on the performance. I couldn't believe the dancers were members of a 'professional' ballet company.
