The Legend Comes to Life

The Latin Ballet of Virginia will present The Legend of the Poinsettia, which tells the story of how the Christmas flower came to be.

The show is based on the Mexican legend of little Maria not having a gift for baby Jesus. All she had was a handful of weeds, but since the gift came from the heart – they turned into the beautiful Poinsettia that we have all come to know around the holiday season.

You can catch the show at the following times:

  • Friday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Jan. 12 at 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Jan. 13 at 3:00 p.m.
