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

The renowned vocal ensemble,Chanticleer, joins the Shanghai Quartet for the southern California premiere of _From the Path of Beauty, _a lyrical and dramatic song cycle for voice and string quartet. In this specially-commissioned work, celebrated composer "Chen Yi ":http://hometown.aol.com/chenyi/myhomepage/profile.htmlshares her deeply personal feelings about her native country, China. The Barclay is especially pleased to invite Chanticleer back to their stage. This “orchestra of voices,” combined with the intimate acoustics of the theatre’s Cheng Hall, never fails to astonish.
