"The Nutcracker" Presented by The South Bay Ballet

Nationally known South Bay Ballet delivers a holiday confection for savvy ballet audiences who are looking for impeccably trained artists and a creative, accessible interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s classic. Grandmother Clara tells the story of a young girl on Christmas Eve, dreaming a lush and vivid fantasy of her faithful Nutcracker Prince escorting her to the Kingdom of Sweets, where she becomes his beautiful, grown-up ballerina–and isn’t that every girl’s Christmas wish?
Los Angeles Opera
The Magic Dream
January 30, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
Educational Outreach Programming
The Magic Dream is a 45-minute high energy introduction to the world of opera, created by Lee Holdridge and Richard Sparks. Directed by Eli Villanueva and aimed at students in grades 2-6, this lighthearted show is a wildly imaginative and engaging celebration of Mozart’s opera, The Magic Flute. Young Pam grew up listening to The Magic Flute with her grandparents, but never understood what was happening in the story. Pam invites us to explore the opera in her creatively, re-imagined version in which she has cast her friends as the colorful characters of The Magic Flute. Together, the group of friends learn that music and your own imagination can take you anywhere.
This is a Los Angeles Opera educational outreach event and is designed for elementary age students. The program is FREE but advanced reservations are required. For more information or to make a reservation, please contact the El Camino College Ticket Office at: (310) 329-5345 or email ArtsTickets@elcamino.edu.
