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

It was a very professional performance. The dancers, sets and costumes were all enjoyable. There were a few local dancers that were exceptional, but there was a noticeable difference as compared to the male and female leads who were so very accomlished, and so beautiful to watch.
