Celebrating the Holidays with Asian Flair

Our stockings are hung on the mantlepieces of The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast, and garlands wrap the staircases and entry, in preparation for a full house of guests this Christmas.  The Plaza twinkles with thousands of colored lights on every tree, and Santa Fe residents are busy making truckloads of farolitos to line their walkways and rooftops on Christmas Eve.  Along with the beautiful holiday decorations are a variety of holiday concerts given by the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, Santa Fe Pro Musica and the Santa Fe Symphony.

For those of you looking for an out of the ordinary activity during the holiday season, check out The Golden Dragon Acrobats at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.  Their production of "Cirque Ziva" is having its premiere performance in Santa Fe, and will continue on for another six months of touring.  The troupe continues a tradition going back 25 centuries, and combines acrobatic feats, traditional Asian dance, and stunning costumes with both ancient and contemporary music.  The Golden Dragon Acrobats are considered to be the top Chinese acrobat touring company of the day, and will leave you spellbound with their fast-paced and technologically thrilling spectacle - an exciting show for the whole family to enjoy.

Performances are scheduled for December 20, 21 and 22 from 7-9pm, with a matinee performance on December 22 at 1pm.  Ticket price range from $20-$35 and may be purchased online or by phone at 505.988.1234.
