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

Pronounced “kush came,” this company will make its first West Coast appearance en route to New York. Controversial, startling and aggressive in movement and text, this dance-theater piece is based on the studies of couples’ relationships by noted psychologist R.D. Laing. Widely acclaimed on the international festival circuit, this award-winning evening, bursting with high-octane choreography, is both brutal and touching — and at times, hilarious. Virtuoso choreographer Liam Steel (of Stan Won’t Dance) directs the six performers of CoisCéim in a show that tries to untangle the complexity of human relationships.
