Cactus and Succulent show
The Cactus and Succulent Society of New Mexico (CSSNM) will have an exhibition of prize-winning plants along with some presentations and demonstrations during Labor Day weekend. Come see some of the exotic, fascinating, occasionally confusing, and wonderful plants from the world of cacti and other succulents. Learn about the cold hardy plants that work well in Albuquerque landscapes, including many “non-prickly” ones, how to handle the “prickly” ones, and even learn about the edible ones. Join us for a fun and educational event.
Albuquerque Isotopes vs. Las Vegas Aviators
Come out to cheer on the Albuquerque Isotopes as they take on the Las Vegas Aviators!
In the court of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II, Antonio Salieri is the established composer. Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition, to be a great composer. Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri's envious grasp: Genius. A fictionalized account of the relationship between these two real life composers, Peter Shaffer's Amadeus takes us on a wild ride through the trials and tribulations of genius, jealousy and revenge.
