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

- Be forewarned! They may look like cuddly little muppets wonderfully crafted by the Henson Workshop, but they have a wicked sense of humor.

No two performances are alike. Host Patrick Bristow and six superb comedian/puppeteers improvise on suggestions from the audience to create a one-of-a-kind show that can be enjoyed two different ways. Watch the action onstage, or view the live puppet feed projected on screens overhead. It's double the fun. Each show also features recreations of a couple of Jim Henson classics that first aired on the Ed Sullivan Show and launched the Henson phenomenon.
