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

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.
