An Evening with
the Luna-Otero Family

A Special Performance


For the New Mexico Legislative Finance Committee

Thursday, August 11, 6:30 pm

Your evening will include a gourmet meal, during which you will be visited by distinguished members of the Luna and Otero families who lived in New Mexico between the 1700s and 1900s -- men and women who were influential in shaping the economy, society, and government of the state today.  As you dine, the costumed actors who portray these family members will tell you the stories of their lives, which include adventure, romance, political intrigue, murder, and even a ghost!  Some of the stories you'll hear took place in the very rooms in which you'll be dining.

New family member added to show!

At this year's show, you'll have a chance to hear about another member of the Luna family: Max Luna, a dashing young military officer who served with Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders. 

The bust of Max shown below is located in the State Capitol building in Santa Fe, and his name tops the list of names engraved on the Rough Riders memorial in Arlington National Cemetery.

Come learn about Max and the rest of his family, plus a few other new characters at the Luna Mansion!
