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

This was an amazing production. The dancers were outstanding. The set design and costumes were really spectacular, so beautiful. My Mom and I were just delighted and my 4 year old was mesmerized. It even snowed onstage!
The Barclay is a wonderful theatre. Small and intimate. We sat in the last row of the balcony and could see perfectly- even my 4 year old. I'm pretty sure there's not a bad seat in the house.
