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

Backhausdance returns to the Barclay with Incandescent, Jennifer Backhaus’ first evening-length work, which premiered in 2010 in New York City.
Based on the theme of illumination, Ms. Backhaus explores light in both a physical and spiritual sense. Incandescent evokes a sense of discovery and expression of the human experience by igniting the internal shadow and bringing it to light. The piece has dancers shifting through various configurations of hundreds of light bulbs suspended from above with creative lighting techniques that help express the spectrum of emotions they experience on their journey. The human spirit glows when it is ignited by self awareness, creativity and the connection to others.
Backhausdance, Orange County’s premier contemporary dance company, was recently hailed as “one of the seven emerging dance companies in North America” by the Joyce SoHo in New York City. The company is known for its eclectic and dynamic vocabulary and for original movement that is physically demanding and strong yet fluid.
