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

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!

WOW, that's all I can say WOW!
For a 5 person troupe to do so much amazing stuff, from climbing the curtains, fighting with a raincoat, alligator eating her leg & knitting it back on, a train going thru a person.... Wonderful performance, it...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Fluid, sensual, stylish – sublime.”* *—The Times (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.
