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 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.
