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

The New World Flamenco Festival has ordered up a big new show that will be rehearsed in Spain and presented in its world premiere. _Somos Flamencos _celebrates flamenco’s most treasured traditions of improvisation and spontaneity among its dancers, singers and guitarists. Yaelisa, the Festival’s artistic director, is guest-directing this extraordinary ensemble of Spain’s top dancers, musicians and singers.
In response to some of its other original shows – Jerez, Puro; _Sin Fronteras _starring Savion Glover; and _Y Una Batita de Cola _- the Festival has been asked to represent this show on a national tour during the 2009-2010 season. The run has been extended to five nights of vibrant dance, majestic cante, and soulful guitar.
