Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More

I loved it! I didn't know what exactly to expect & it is hard to explain, but the illusions were wonderful, creative & thought provoking. I highly recommend it! Once you see it, I'm sure you will agree that it is indescribably delicious! What a delightful surprise!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Fluid, sensual, stylish – sublime."<strong> </strong>--<em>The Times</em> (London)
Step into a surreal theatrical world, where disbelief is suspended and nothing is what it seems. A smash hit in London and at the Spoleto Festival, Aurelia’s Oratorio is a magical whirl of visual illusions and trickery. Inspired by the magic of the music hall, variety and circus, this show stars Aurélia Thierrée, Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, and is created and directed by her mother Victoria Chaplin Thierrée (creator of Cirque Invisible). Actress, illusionist, and dancer, Aurélia takes us into an unforgettable realm of fun and fantasy, in a whimsical and yet sophisticated evening of theatre.
