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

Marc Cohn was great. Since this was our first time seeing him (always wanted to) we were grateful for this 'best of' show. This was basically like an unplugged show with just him and his friend on electric and acoustic guitars. His voice still sounds great, song selection was excellent and the sound in the theatre was exceptional. Thanks to Marc, wonderful evening.
A Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, Marc Cohn (“Walking in Memphis,” “Silver Thunderbird,” “True Companion”) is a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant. He is able to distill universal truths from his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. His music combines the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man.
The show includes songs from his latest release _Listening Booth: 1970. _Cohn doesn’t merely recreate the sounds of this storied time, he transforms songs from such artists as Cat Stevens, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Smokey Robinson, Creedence Clearwater Revival and even Bread into tracks that are warm, soulful, sometimes a little sexy, and always full of easy-going charm.
