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

You can be sure of an evening of high-style, droll wit, and fabulous music when Max Raabe and his big band return to the Barclay. This urbane group from Berlin is renowned for recreating the musical glory of the Weimar-era, pop songs of the ’20s and ’30s, and exquisitely crafted modern love songs. Songs you’ve heard many times, and songs you will want to hear again and again. Max’s winsome demeanor and playful banter have charmed audiences from Carnegie Hall to L.A. He sings with his tongue firmly in-cheek … but in high musical style.
