Our season at The Granada opens with a stunning Triple Bill: American Masters. Produced in association with the Santa Barbara Choral Society and orchestra, featuring Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, and choreography by Willian Soleau, this tour-de-force production showcases arts collaboration at its best. It’s an experience to be cherished.
In December, we’re joined by Opera San Luis Obispo Grand Orchestra, the students of Gustafson Dance, and a local children’s choir for the annual community favorite, The Nutcracker at The Granada. Our spring performance, Sleeping Beauty, is a world premiere and the newest story ballet in our Family Series..
Give the gift of live music and support the Nutcracker Orchestra Fund! Help us bring Tchaikovsky's iconic music to life at the Granada Theatre for this annual holiday favorite. Special perks await donations of all sizes as we strive to reach our goal of $30,000!
This beloved holiday tradition delights audiences of all ages, and features the Opera San Luis Obispo Grand Orchestra, and the students of Gustafson Dance.
