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

From the creators of Opus Cactus, Baseball and Passion comes a fantasy land of breathtaking beauty. Some have likened Botanica to the film, Avatar, but on stage.
MOMIX combines athleticism, riveting music, inventive costumes and spellbinding choreography to create a world of surrealistic images and wonder all brought to life by a cast of dancer-illusionists.
This brilliant exploration of nature’s forms uses large scale puppets and larger-than-life props designed by Michael Curry (The Lion King). The exotic visual landscape emerges from Artistic Director Moses Pendleton’s whimsical, fertile and mythological imagination.
