Take in sensational tutus and twirls with today’s side deal: for $10, you get one ticket to The Legend of the Poinsettia from the Latin Ballet of Virginia (up to a $20 value), performed at the Cultural Arts Center in Glen Allen from January 7 through January 9. Call ahead to reserve your general admission ticket for the Friday evening, Saturday matinee, or Saturday evening performance.
The Legend of the Poinsettia, based on a traditional Mexican legend, unfolds onstage with fiery costumes, rhythmic music, and stunning dance movies. The Legend tells the tale of a young girl and amateur botanist who discovers the true meaning of giving. When all she has to offer for Christmas is a modest gift of ragged weeds, her pureness of heart transforms the paltry shrubs into ravishing crimson blossoms, beginning the custom of giving poinsettias for the holidays. Gliding across the stage, dancers blend cultural music and steps into a festive, family-friendly performance. Holiday lovers, dance fans, and flower enthusiasts alike can buy up to 10 Groupons and treat their college basketball team to an inspiring, breathtaking show.
