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
Quotes & Highlights
Curran is “an irrepressible genie, erupting into swift-footed shifts of emotional imagery…a quick change artist who turns one character into another before our eyes.” New York Times
“The choreographic discovery of the year.” Los Angeles Times
Described as the Buster Keaton of contemporary dance, Sean Curran’s dance creations are imbued with his signature virtuosity, complex musicality, and a kaleidoscope of emotional expession. In 1997, he formed his own company, which has been presented at all the major dance venues in New York and numerous dance festivals. He has been commissioned to create new works by several major companies and has attained critical raves for his choreography for the Broadway musical James Joyce’s “The Dead.” With scores ranging from contemporary composers and recording artists to traditional Irish mouth music, the company’s eclectic repertory includes group works as well as Curran’s renowned solos.
