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
Rafaela Carrasco of Sevilla is one of the most important flamenco choreographers of the younger generation. She is also a breathtaking dancer. Una Mirada al Flamenco, Rafaela’s latest work, fully displays her rare ability to explore new concepts while maintaining the essence and integrity of flamenco. The company includes five male and female dancers and an equal complement of guitarists, singers and other musicians. The 2006 festival is pleased to present Ms. Carrasco at a time when her star is rising.
