Festival Ballet Theatre Nutcracker: Short & Sweet

Events Canceled

Festival Ballet Theatre and Irvine Barclay Theatre are deeply disappointed that, due to the recent orders regarding gatherings in our region, we have been left with the difficult decision to cancel the Nutcracker Short & Sweet events planned for December 19-23. We assure you that all matters were carefully considered in this decision-making process. Although we are saddened that the show can’t go on, we are prioritizing the health and safety of our audience, performers, and staff during this challenging time. Moving forward, our ultimate hope is to return to the presentation of live performing arts as soon as possible, and we will continue to work toward that goal.

The Barclay Box Office has issued an email to all ticket holders regarding this cancellation. Please email for further information and questions.
