Aliento: Carnaval 2017

Party Like it's the End of the World

It's still pre-Lent and pre-apocalypse, so get your party outfit on and head over to Aliento: Carnaval 2017 this Friday, Feb. 24, and Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at 7:30pm. The National Hispanic Cultural Center's Albuquerque Journal Theatre will be transformed into a television dance show of the past with musical acts from PANdemonium and the Odara Dance Ensemble. Celebrate and partake in the Carnival traditions of Cuba, Trinidad, Brazil and New Orleans. Unlike prior performances, the audience will be able to participate and join the show. Tickets only cost $17-$27, and are likely to sell out by the day of the show so get 'em while they're hot! Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Megan Reneau)

Come celebrate Carnaval as the NHCC and Frank Leto Musical Ventures turn the Albuquerque Journal Theatre into the set of a television dance show! As in years past, the Odara Dance Ensemble and the musical group PANdemonium will take you on a journey through the Carnaval traditions of Cuba, Trinidad, Brazil and New Orleans. But this year, the audience will be joining the celebration! As Fernando Fresquez hosts the dazzling spectacle of vibrant dance, engaging music, and beautiful costumes you have come to expect, there will be a space for you to dance when the music moves you, many chances to win prizes, and plenty of opportunities to become part of the show!
