"The Nutcracker" Presented by The South Bay Ballet

Marsee Auditorium

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?

For tickets, visit or the South Bay Ballet website.

The Marriage of Figueroa

Marsee Auditorium

Educational Outreach Programming 

Based on Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, our story is set at the beautiful (and fictional) Mission Aguas Frescas where a wedding celebration for the powerful (and real) governor of Upper  California, General José Figueroa, is underway. Figueroa receives a surprise wedding gift: a performance of his favorite opera, The Marriage of Figaro. His guests ask him to perform the role of Figaro to teach him a lesson about the error of his greedy ways.

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
