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
“Darol Anger is the quintessential improvising violinist.” —CBS Sunday Morning
“Darol is one of those players who benefits from not being pigeonholed. I have always loved Darol’s approach to music – the soulful qualities of his playing … an appreciation for the roots of things.” —Mark O’Connor
It has been said that Darol Anger is to the fiddle what Bela Fleck is to the banjo – a stylistic adventurer that brings new life to the music.
Irvine Barclay Theatre is honored to have Darol making his third appearance at the theatre. You may have seen him at the Barclay with the Turtle Island String Quartet or with Fiddlers 4, or at one of his many other performances with Psychograss – or with great players such as Bela Fleck, Mike Marshall, Michael Doucet or Mark O’Connor.
Darol is now touring with his latest string band, The Republic of Strings, with some of the hottest young talent performing anywhere today. Their new cd Generation Nation is getting a lot of buzz and critical acclaim.
If you’ve not heard Darol Anger play, this is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed – great musicianship with a lively sense of fun. One of those laid back evenings that will keep you tapping your foot and smiling through the night.
