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

“Marvelous – crackling with dancing that snaps like a whip. They are terrific.” —_New York Times _
Two different musical ensembles reverberate with the folk music that inspired Liszt, Bartók and Kodály. The members of the Folk Orchestra play authentic, traditional instruments and perform Hungarian music at an artistic level equal to any classical orchestra, while the famous Gipsy Orchestra marries music and dance in a way that enlivens the room and draws cheering audiences to their feet.
