For more than 25 years, the Anaheim Ballet has gotten the holiday season off to a spectacular start with its production of Tchaikovsky's timeless dance. From towering Christmas trees to menacing mice and more, this version of the quintessential family favorite is always updated to bring fresh thrills to audiences, who can't help but get wrapped up in the magical story of young Clara. She dreams that her new toy nutcracker soldier has come to life, and together they experience a fantastical adventure that leads them through an epic battle with the Mouse King to reach the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. The production is accompanied by a live performance from Symphony Irvine. Learn More

A combination of country, folk, rock, and blues, Mary Chapin Carpenter's music defies easy categorization. The singer herself has been compared to other indefinable artists such as Rosanne Cash, Nanci Griffith, and the Indigo Girls, but her sound and lyrics are distinctly her own. Although Carpenter has been embraced by the country music world, listeners from all backgrounds have found meaning in her depictions of the unheralded triumphs and failures of day-to-day life.
The 1989 album State of the Heart offered four Top 20 hits, including "Never Had It So Good" and "Quittin' Time." She followed it with the eloquent 1990 album Shooting Straight in the Dark, which featured the breezy hit "Down at the Twist and Shout." However, her career came to its commercial high in 1992 when Come On Come On sold 5 million copies and earned her the CMA female vocalist trophy in 1992 and 1993. Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards, and is the only artist to have won four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, which she received from 1992 to 1995.
