Following the tremendous success of The Little Mermaid, the Center is proud to welcome the return of John Neumeier's Hamburg Ballett with the American premiere of Liliom. A superb storyteller, Neumeier applies his singular vision to Liliom, the 1909 play made famous by the musical Carousel. With original score by Oscar® winner Michel Legrand, Neumeier's adaptation of the troubled carousel barker who struggles to be a better person is more poignant than ever.

Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10

February 2, 2014 | Sunday at 3 p.m.
Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. $25 - $85. www.pacificsymphony.org

Full of tragedy, terror and - ultimately - triumph, Shostakovich's electrifying Symphony No. 10 is also full of memorable musical ideas. Music Director Carl St.Clair and the orchestra showcase the composer's greatest work.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts presents Family:

Jump Leads: Still Awake Still! (West Coast Premiere)
February 8 & 9, 2014 | Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 1 and 3:30 p.m. Samueli Theater. $20.
www.scfta.org

Miss Ivory Tinklefinger, Queen of Sleep, is hired to sing the audience to sleep, but tonight her piano has a mind of its own. Her lullabies come alive - and the consequences are wild! Inspired by parents' daily challenge of putting their little ones to bed, Still Awake Still! explores the tussle between order and chaos, rest and play, reason and intuition, in a drama that celebrates the process of creativity. Part-concert, part- theater, the entire show emerges like magic from beneath the lid of the ingenious grand piano set. Based on much-loved songs from I'm Still Awake, Still!, a bedtime book by Elizabeth Honey and Sue Johnson, this show is strikingly original, strangely beautiful and ridiculously funny, with mayhem worthy of the Marx Brothers.

Pacific Symphony presents:
The Three Musketeers

February 9, 2014 | Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
Reneee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. $10 - $44. www.pacificsymphony.org

Organist Dennis James provides the soundtrack to the classic 1921 silent film starring Douglas Fairbanks. Enjoy swashbuckling swordplay from the mustachioed master matinee maven while experiencing the overwhelming sounds from the 4,322-pipe organ!
