Suggestion for 'Nutcracker' troupes

-A A +A

Bravo to New Mexico Dance Theater–Performance Company (NMDT–PC) for its world-premiere production of “The Nutcracker.”
 The unexpected visuals were spectacular (including the muscle men carrying the Arabian dancer onstage and the dozens of angels and tiny bakers walking through the aisles).
 All of the dancing was exquisite and a delight to watch.
Such talent in this small town! And how great to live in a community that has two dance troupes performing this ballet.
I have a suggestion (or really a question): Would it be possible for the two troupes to share the same performance date and trade off performing “The Nutcracker” on that date each year?
 That weekend could then become “Nutcracker” time in Los Alamos and the community would always know when to expect to see this classic holiday ballet.
If you haven’t seen NMDT–PC’s production yet, DO go see it this coming weekend.
