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

So what, exactly, is this? Well, it's definitely not your grandmother's opera!
Pop-Opera, or "popera" if you will, is our own fusion of the musical terms and styles of "pop" and opera as only Men Alive can bring!
Imagine Lady GaGa's "Edge of Glory" performed as a soaring pop and opera mix, or the tender beauty of Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" done as a power ballad! How about a totally re-imagined "Anvil Chorus" as you've never heard before? And in this concert, you'll hear a bit of Verdi and Gilbert & Sullivan right next to a bit of Annie Lennox and Madonna! They've even dared to stage a live-action version of an "operatic" animated classic you'll instantly recognize! That's right ... they went there!
Get ready for magnificent costumes, fabulous dance numbers, incredible songs and the "Popperettas" to guide you through the whole amazing experience.
