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

Excellent seats and the performance was amazing. So many different instruments from both north and South India. The mix of western and japanese instruments made it so different but the fusion was excellent. would definitely recommend it to others and would go see it again.
Tarang, an ensemble created and directed by Abhijit Banerjee, focuses on Indian percussion, blending intricate and catchy rhythms with melodies derived from Indian classical music. The Tarang ensemble consists of some of the masters of percussion in the Indian musical genre. The instruments- the tabla, ghatam and the morsing- provide the entire spectrum of sound, from deep bass, mid-range to high frequencies, all accomplished through natural sound modulations. The melodies are interwoven with a dazzling array of rhythmic structures, createting a vibrant, pulsating yet soulful blend of music.
Since its premiere in 2002, Tarang has performed on invitation at several prestigious venues in India. The ensemble first toured the US in 2003 and received rave reviews from the _San Francisco Chronicle _and the LA Times. Their 15-city tour included performances at several venues across the US and an appearance on CNBC.
