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

Quotes & Highlights
“These men are phenomenal: as fresh as a blade of grass, tightly focused and keenly expressive.” —New York Times
Praised by The New York Times for its “precise, pure, and deeply felt singing,” the Grammy-winning ensemble, Chanticleer, celebrates its 28th season with a one-night-only performance at the Barclay. No subject has inspired poets and composers more than the beauty and power of nature. With EarthSongs, acclaimed 12-man ensemble Chanticleer pairs poets’ words with music to celebrate the grace of earth’s creatures, the voices of the seasons and the very rhythms of our planet. From delicate madrigals, to contemporary settings to evocations of native cultures, EarthSongs will resonate with listeners long after the final note has been sung.
