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

It was very original & thought provoking. The program gave an excellent introduction regarding the dance and settings. This was very helpful and gave an understanding to appreciating the action on the stage. Unfortunately, the audience had a sufficient number of idiots who couldn't contain their rather loud laughter over the unusual moves. Next to me were a popcorn eater and a laughing hyena. Perhaps, they thought this was going to be a teen age flick.
This is the only West Coast engagement during the company’s U.S. debut tour.
