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
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.
