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

My seats were in the fifth row. Great, right? Wrong. The problem with them was that they were on the end, and the puppet stage had been designed deep, so much of the action took place down stage and was fully obstructed from all audience members outside 45 degrees from the center. One had to be nearly dead on in front of the stage to see everything. At the intermission, I relocated to a seat in the center section, which was much better (although now I was now 23 rows back). The production was creative and beautiful to see (when I did finally get to see part of it), but WARNING parents - Wagner did not write for children, so don't expect this to be a kids' show. It is a tragedy, wrought with sex (including incest) and violence. Also, although there is some narration in English, it's a German opera, and all of the lyrics are in the drama's native tongue. English-only children may find that a little bit boring. I suggest leaving the little ones at home for this one, and suspending your own disbelief for a while.
