"The Lady of White Sands"
Several years ago, I wrote a post about White Sands National Monument which you can read here . Since White Sands Desert is a prominent location in the first part of Tierra Red, I was thrilled to discover an old Indian legend connected to it.
Today, S. Derrickson Moore of the Las Cruces Sun-News wrote an article announcing the premier performance of "The Lady of White Sands", an original ballet based on the same legend -- Pavla Blanca -- which will be performed in Alamogordo, New Mexico on Saturday, June 30th. Las Cruces will be treated to another performance on August 4th, then El Paso will be the site on August 10th.
My first impression upon reading about this legend was one of pure delight. I am equally delighted that it has inspired yet another art form!
