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

What a fantastic evening, filled with dance! My daughter and I got great seats, 10th row - no problems picking tickets up at the box office before the show. The show featured guest dancers from all over the globe, as well as some local Orange County dancers from Festival Ballet Theatre. They were ALL superb! We got to see a mix of classical ballet and contemporary dance. My daughter even got a few autographs after the show.
