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

Excellent. Cantus' voices blend like a huge single instrument. Though on a smaller scale, they seem to be emulating Chanticleer. We enjoyed the informality, almost conversationality among the singers, how each responded to each other.
Cantus, one of America’s finest male vocal ensembles and Theater Latté Da join forces in bringing to life this amazing story of hope and goodwill to men. A musical radio play for spoken word and choral voices, All Is Calm features such holiday classics as Silent Night, O Holy Night and popular songs of the day, interspersed with narration from the heartfelt letters of the story’s real-life characters. Sold-out in concerts throughout the country, this intimate evening of musical storytelling “is likely to become a classic to be repeated for years to come.”
