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

Perhaps I didn't read the advertisement correctly but we were under the impression that this was a full production play. A one-person storyteller did not fit the bill. My rating is only for the disappointment; otherwise (to be fair), the David Gonzalez' performance is a four star performance for people who know ahead of time what to expect.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Mr. Gonzalez works his magic…absorbing, funny and suspenseful. <em>The Frog Bride</em> is enchanting.” <em>--New York Times</em>
A hip new family-friendly adaptation of the classic Russian fairy tale, The Frog Bride is beautifully told to the music of Prokofiev and original jazz/rock compositions in a setting of bold video images derived from Kandinsky. David Gonzalez tells this tale of a dreamy (and prideful) young man’s journey into manhood – told with a comic spark that swells to the outrageous.
The Frog Bride made its New York debut this past spring to glowing reviews and wildly enthusiastic audiences. The sold-out show was further recognized with a Drama Desk nomination for “Unique Theatrical Experience,” an honor rarely given to family entertainment. A magical, enchanting hour of storytelling, this is a delightful way to introduce a young child to the joy of theatre – and a charming way for an adult to pass an hour, too.
Recommended for ages 6 and up.
