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

Worthwhile production of Othello by the NT. Kinnear was wonderful as Iago; Lester was good as Othello. The setting in modern-day Iraq was fairly successful, though I don't believe it mattered too much. For me the female parts were not done as well but if you are interested in Shakespeare, you should see this if only for Kinnear's amazing performance.
Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle_) takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (_The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall_), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (_Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
