‘Legend of the Poinsettia’ returns to Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen

The Latin Ballet of Virginia's Legend of the Poinsettia will return to The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen for performances Jan. 5-8.

The Legend of the Poinsettia is based upon a Mexican legend and traditional story in the Latin American holiday season about a pure hearted girl who discovers the true spirit of giving.

Unable to offer a gift of material value, the girl picks a handful of weeds that magically transform into brilliant crimson flowers, and thus the custom of giving poinsettias during the holidays is born. The production portrays the traditions of the season in the countries of Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Spain and Puerto Rico.

Dances and music demonstrate cultural celebrations with aguinaldos, gaitas, parrandas, rumbas, cumbias and porros. The spiritual reverence of the season is combined with the joy and laughter of the traditional festivities. Guest artists include soprano Audra Harvey and Virginia dance pioneer Frances Wessells.

Performances will be held each day at 7:30 p.m., as well as Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for children, students, seniors and military members. Group tickets (10 or more) are available for $10 apiece or (20 or more) $7 apiece. To order tickets, visit http://www.latinballet.com or call 379-2555. The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen is located at 2880 Mountain Road, Glen Allen.
