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 festival presents a premiere work dedicated to the flamenco of Morón de la Frontera. Moron, a tiempo y a compas is an ode to a singular style of flamenco found in this tiny village. Juana Amaya’s company includes her uncle, the legendary guitarist Juan del Gastor, her daughter Nazaret, and other musicians and dancers from Moron. This marks the first time that Juana will have performed with her uncle, make these performances a tribute, as well, to the del Gastor legacy that she and her daughter have inherited.
