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

Praised by The New York Times as “dazzling” and considered the greatest living slack key guitar player by _Esquire _Magazine, Makana’s personal songs weave the roots of Hawaii’s vast musical palette into a universal sound. A three-time Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner (Hawaii’s Academy of Recording Arts), Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole is the voice of Hawai’i’s new generation. With a passionate, unmatched love of his music and culture, Kaumakaiwa challenges not only himself but his contemporaries as well. Together, these two artists weave an extraordinary musical tapestry. With a musical language that expresses the diverse range of human emotion and experience, Makana and Kaumakaiwa Kanaka’ole are blazing a new trail in the 21st century while paying homage to those who have come before them.
