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

Celebrating 25 years as a choreographer, Sally Silvers premieres Ruptable, her first work commissioned by Saint Joseph Ballet. In this piece, the performers navigate their quirky, off-kilter moves with tenderness, intensity, and humor to help all of us question: what is normal, what is out of control, what is worth holding onto? By excavating the twists and tensions of personal and cultural discovery, Ruptable stages their interruptions, eruptions, corruptions, ruptures. Or lets them loose.
_Living with Murky _was sparked by Rios Glaser’s current interest in being comfortable in states of fluidity—where complexity, unanswered questions and subtexts, can exist without resolve. A collaboration with lighting designer Ben Tusher, this piece includes a cast of 60 dancers who span in age from 10-32. From this open and sometimes muddled place the insight on the exquisite necessity for difference becomes apparent.
Nami Yamamoto returns with a re-staging of _a howling flower bloomed in my eye. _Moving, searching and relentless, this piece is a poignant study in determination and constancy. Yamamoto offers us the rare chance to admire these young dancers as they deliver a performance requiring the maturity of an ancient soul.
