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

An utterly moving integration of movement, visual imagery and the spoken word, the Barclay presents the southern California premiere of Joe Goode's latest dance-theater work. Wonderboy is an intimate story of an unlikely superhero realized through inspired movement and the enchantment of puppetry. Acclaimed for creating deeply felt, profoundly human experiences, choreographer Joe Goode works with acclaimed puppet designer Basil Twist to create a magical collaboration of innovative storytelling infused with wit, humor and pathos.
Wonderboy had its world premiere last June in San Francisco. The program also includes an audience favorite: Joe Goode’s 1996 work, Maverick Strain.
NOTE: This performance is not appropriate for children.
