An annual holiday tradition at the Barclay Theatre, the Festival Ballet presents its full-length production of The Nutcracker. Set to the cherished Tchaikovsky score, the ballet tells the timeless coming-of-age story of Clara, a young girl who receives a wooden nutcracker soldier as a Christmas gift. That night she dreams that her nutcracker comes to life and battles the ferocious Mouse King. As he and Clara defeat the wicked beast together, the nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince, who takes Clara on a grand adventure to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. This full-length, traditional production is choreographed and directed by Festival Ballet Theatre's Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla, and features a cast of professional dancers and more than 100 Southern California children. There will also be special guest performers to be announced later. Learn More

Cara delighted the audience (who gave her two standing ovations) with her voice AND with her engaging stage presence. Her "Irish wit" was a great complement to the blend of traditional operatic arias and Irish favorites. The venue was a perfect size for the intimacy of the performer-audience interaction. We (and apparently everyone else in attendance did, too) thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon.

Irish soprano Cara O’Sullivan, “The Irish Superstar of her generation” (The Irish Times), joins us for a wonderful afternoon of well-known arias and love songs in a romantic celebration of St. Valentine’s Day! An artist with an impeccable operatic pedigree, Cara has risen to prominence as one of Ireland’s greatest sopranos. Her concert career and operatic engagements have taken her all over the world: Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Sydney Opera House, to name a few.
