Winner of more than 30 international theatre awards, including three Tonys and a Laurence Olivier Award, Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake is a triumphant and thrilling reinterpretation of Tchaikovsky's original, Russian folk tale-inspired ballet. Bourne's iconic and breathtaking production -- which revolves around a young crown prince, his distant mother and the swan that represents the prince's desire for freedom -- took the dance world by storm when it premiered in 1995, and is perhaps best known for its replacement of the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble. The performance featured in this stunning, high-definition screening was filmed at London's Sadler's Wells Theatre in 2011 with a cast that includes Richard Windsor, Dominic North and Nina Goldman.

The group out did themselves with energy, costume changes, scenery but I thought the presentation was too loud, either that or the sound system should have toned it down a little so the voices didn't sound so treble or sharp. Other then that they...continued
It’s that time of year when the world falls in love…

The Magic of Christmas
You probably remember The Young Americans at Tibbie’s Music Hall in Huntington Beach for six years, or perhaps you saw them on The Ed Sullivan Show, Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, Bing Crosby Christmas Specials, or with Bob Hope, Julie Andrews, Dean Martin, Liberace, Fred Astaire, Johnny Mathis, or at the Greek Theatre with Judy Garland.
In this special holiday production, the Young Americans will take you on a ride to a magical place: Christmas in the northern mountains, snow, and a small town. They will take you ice-skating, build a snowman, cut down a Christmas Tree, make snowballs, and snuggle by the fire. See a show within a show at their own “Holiday Inn,” take a sleigh ride, ski the slopes, shop on a small-town main street and hear the special sounds of Christmas at a country church.
The Young Americans consists of 200 members from over 37 states and seven countries around the world. Among its 3000+ alumni are professionals in music education, fine arts, motion pictures, television, radio, Broadway and recording.
Each December, the YAs return to La Mirada Theatre to entertain entire families and celebrate the holiday season. One of the few times each year when all 200 Young Americans perform together as one cast with over 150 costume changes, beautiful choral music and dances ranging from hip hop to the Nutcracker Suite!
The Young Americans were founded almost 50 years ago in Hollywood, CA. For all of these years their purpose has remained the same. First, to provide our talented Young American student performers (15-21 years of age) with education in music, dance, performance and teaching. Second, to use this training, and the good will and optimism of these young people to support music in schools and its inherent benefits through conducting International Music Outreach Workshops in educational facilities of all types throughout the world.
