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

Went with my husband and another couple. Always enjoy seeing events at the Irvine Barclay Theater because the theater is small, so no matter where you sit, you can see. Even though the group performing Giselle was a local ballet company, it was the first time I saw them perform and thought they were quite good ( I am a dance enthusiast and have seen numerous professional groups perform). The male and female lead were from the American Ballet Theater, one of the best companies in my opinion, and the local group, the Festival Ballet, frequently have professional performers in the leads. Very worth the $25 ticket; thank you Goldstar!
