Odysseo LogoThe World’s Largest Touring Production Returns to OC on Nov. 16

Due to strong demand in SoCal, the internationally acclaimed entertainment company Cavalia will return to Orange County two weeks earlier than originally planned with its latest production of Odysseo that is wowing North American audiences and critics alike. After stunning 90,000 spectators from Orange County, LA and San Diego this past spring due to its critical acclaim, Odysseo will be back to call Irvine home for this year’s holiday season.

Attracting audiences of all ages, Odysseo definitely makes a popular family outing and gift idea. With the addition of 13 new performances to the Irvine show calendar, the 30-million-dollar theatrical extravaganza will again be presented under the White Big Top at the junction of the I-405 and the SR-133 in Irvine starting Wednesday, November 16, 2016.

3 carosello danharper 0Odysseo is an immersive theatrical experience that marries the equestrian arts, stage arts, and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A show unlike any other on the planet, Odysseo brings the audiences to a live Hollywood-style movie set, where the moving interactions between human and horse are at the heart of the action. On an enormous stage, layers of mesmerizing decor are combined with live music, gravity-defying acrobatics, mesmerizing aerial stunts and inspiring HD projections, all of which make Odysseo the first 6D show in the world. With a state-of-the-art video screen three times the size of the world’s largest cinema screens, as well as a three-story mountain for dazzling perspectives and a real lake - the last of which magically appears for a splashing finale - Odysseo truly pushes the limits of live entertainment.

TICKETS - Tickets are priced from $29.50 to $144.50 + applicable taxes and fees. For a memorable evening, the Rendez-Vous package offers the best seats in the house, exquisite buffet dining before the show, open bar, desserts during intermission and an exclusive visit of the stables after the show. This unique VIP experience takes place in a tent alongside the White Big Top. The Rendez-Vous package prices range from $149.50 to $254.50 + applicable taxes and fees. Special pricing and packages also available for groups, children (2-12), juniors (13-17) and seniors (65+). Visit www.cavalia.net or  call (866) 999-8111.

IRS problems are a very personal issue and people facing them often do not know where to turn for help.

"IRS problems generally affect all aspects of your life,” says Edward Daoud, Ph.D., MBA., EA. "Many people just live with the problem for months and sometimes years, assuming that nothing can be done about it.”

For anyone facing IRS problems, imagine how relieved they'd feel in the hands of a competent expert who deals with the IRS on a daily basis - a professional who truly cares about helping people. An expert who would give them the peace of mind they and their family deserve so they can stop looking over their shoulder once and for all, knowing that they no longer need to meet or communicate with the IRS.

Too often, individuals attempt to handle their IRS situation themselves (or with their current CPA or the person who prepared their taxes), but don’t receive the relief they are seeking.

Because they know the ‘ins and outs’ of the tax system, Edward Daoud and his experienced team of enrolled agents at Capstone Tax Resolution are uniquely qualified to help individuals struggling with IRS issues to negotiate a personalized solution for the resolution of their tax problems.

"It’s easy for good, hard-working Americans to fall behind,” says Edward. "Providing IRS Tax help to Orange County residents was a natural evolution for us as a company to expand the scope of our financial services. We have helped settle over 100 cases for a small fraction of the amount owed. As your representative, we handle all IRS communications on your behalf.”

One client, James S. of Laguna Woods says that working with Edward was a “warm and personal as well as a professional experience. We would absolutely recommend the services provided by Capstone Financial” and encourages anyone facing IRS issues to “avail yourself to this experience. A personal touch is deeply appreciated."

Capstone Financial & Tax Services handles IRS representation services including the Preparation of Unfiled Income Tax Returns, Penalty Reduction, Offers in Compromise (OIC), Payment Plans, Financial Hardship Plans, Wage Garnishment/Bank Levy Releases, Audits and IRS Appeals.

"We’ll listen to your IRS difficulties in our office in complete confidence at NO CHARGE. We’ll answer your questions, explain your options and suggest solutions and provide you with a written estimate of our fees to permanently resolve your IRS difficulties.”

To connect with Edward and the team at Capstone Tax Resolution call (949) 310-3261 or  visit www.CapstoneTaxPros.com. Capstone is located at 43 Marbella, Suite 102 in San Clemente.

This summer, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®,the circus that started it all, invites fans to blast off on an intergalactic adventure with the launch of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Out Of This World™ - an all new, immersive experience playing at the Honda Center/Anaheim from July 29 – August 7.

“As we unveil Out Of This World, a show unlike anything experienced before, we are launching our iconic brand into the future,” said Alana Feld, Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment and Producer of Out Of This World. “Ringling Bros. is constantly changing, but this is more than that. In this production, we’re creating a new genre of circus that will shatter expectations, spark excitement and push the limits of what’s possible.”

In Out Of This World, audiences will be riveted by an interactive, action-packed storyline filled with space-age family fun and technology, which deepens their connection to the performers. Through the lens of a magic telescope capable of discovering the most spectacular circus stars in the galaxy, they will join the Circus Space Fleet on a heroic mission of good versus evil to bring performers back to Earth, traveling to interstellar worlds of sand, water, fire and ice.

For the first time, the show features thrill skaters, in addition to unbelievable performances by gravity-defying acrobats, majestic animals and hilarious clowns. Imaginations will run wild throughout the non-stop display of artistic athleticism, with acts seamlessly transitioning from floor to air to ice, a feat never before done in Ringling Bros. history.

“By adding the element of ice, we’re bringing speed and motion to an already thrilling, multi-sensory performance,” said Feld. “Throughout the show, families won’t know where the floor ends and the ice begins. In the same way, parents won’t know what’s more amazing: what is happening in front of them or the look of wonder in their children’s eyes.”

I've always been partial to people who go above and beyond. It's a character trait I seem to consistently run across when conducting interviews with individuals utilizing the services of Hospice Care of the West and this showcase on Mr. Vernon Clover and his wife, Donna, is no exception.

Vernon, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease, has been under the care of Dr. Kang Hsu, Medical Director at Hospice Care of the West, for nearly three years. In that time, Dr. Hsu and the man he calls "one of his favorite patients," frequently chatted about the former high school driver's education teacher and boy's basketball coach's love of the game. So when Dr. Hsu learned that Vernon was a Lakers fan, he volunteered a pair of tickets that allowed Vernon and his wife their first visit to the Staples Center to watch their team play last December as part of Hospice Care of the West’s new “True Loves and Wishes” program created to grant the wishes of its patients.

"We had such a wonderful time," says Donna. "I had never been to a professional game and it had been many years since Vernon had been to one, so we can't thank Dr. Hsu enough for such a memorable afternoon. It certainly added to the excitement that the Lakers won that day! But more than that, everyone at Hospice Care of the West is so nice and so caring, they have really been an incredible help to us on every level."

A native Oklahoman, Vernon met his future bride on a blind date and they will celebrate their 47th wedding anniversary in October. An "Army brat," Donna was born in Pennsylvania and raised all over the country in states where her father was stationed, including Kentucky, Florida, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Donna's son David Schaffer lives two blocks away from the couple and her daughter, Chris, lives in Texas, while Vernon's daughter Stacey lives in Tulsa. Vernon and Donna are the proud grandparents of three "lovely granddaughters" - Alexis, 21, Caroline, 16 and Isabella, 13.

Pacific Symphony announces a blockbuster Summer Festival 2016 designed to evoke the memories of the last 30 years with exhilarating and iconic music for the final season at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre before its scheduled closure. Warm pleasant evenings, picnic baskets flowing with delectable goodies, surrounded by family and friends, are only the cherry on the top – for those planning their summer around five exceptional musical experiences under the stars. The Symphony’s 2016 Summer Festival kicks off with a high-energy, celebratory start with a July 4 Spectacular – this year featuring The Music of Michael Jackson and showcasing the best-known hits of the legendary “King of Pop.” From The Jackson 5 to his final film, “This Is It!” the evening includes music from “Off the Wall,” “Thriller,” “Bad,” “Blood on the Dance Floor” and much more. The seven-piece rock group Windborne, along with lead singer James Delisco, joins the Symphony to bring to life the genius of Michael Jackson’s legacy. The concert, taking place on Monday, July 4, at 8 p.m., is led by Maestro Kaufman, and includes the holiday traditions of a salute to the U.S. Armed Forces and patriotic favorites, before closing with a brilliant fireworks finale.

Beethoven’s blockbuster Ninth Symphony (Saturday, July 23 at 8 pm) - with a huge orchestra, full chorus and a spine-tingling vocal quartet of world-class singers – is the crown jewel of the final Summer Festival season at Irvine Meadows.

Next, the film that gave the world one of its greatest movie heroes – Indiana Jones – is back and better than ever before on Saturday, August 13th at 8 pm! Relive the magic on the silver screen with the original great adventure, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” with

John Williams’ thrilling score performed live to the full-length film by the Symphony, led by international guest conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos, music director of the Queens Symphony Orchestra and general director of Chatham Opera.

Dashing and debonair, Bond’s movie themes are instantly recognizable, evoking international intrigue, glamour and suspense. Two-time Grammy Award-winner Sheena Easton, the featured singer on the James Bond soundtrack, “For Your Eyes Only,” seduces the audience into the world of “Goldfinger,” “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “Skyfall,” plus “spy” songs from “Mission Impossible,” “Austin Powers” and more. The Spy Who Loved Me takes place Sunday, Aug. 21, at 7:30 p.m.

Labor Day weekend never sounded so good. The Symphony’s final concert at Irvine Meadows is rife with booming cannons, dazzling fireworks and extraordinary music. What more fitting conclusion to this incredible era in the Symphony’s history than to end on a triumphant note with “Tchaikovsky Spectacular,” featuring the outstanding young talent of violinist Paul Huang and pianist Natasha Paremski. Maestro St.Clair returns for this special evening to take the audience on a trip down memory lane, reminiscing on nearly three decades of concerts “in the meadows.” The program is a Tchaikovsky hit parade featuring excerpts from the perennially popular ballets “Swan Lake” and “The Nutcracker,” and two beloved concertos. The curtain falls on this chapter of the Symphony’s history to the traditional sounds of the electrifying “1812 Overture” on Saturday, Sept. 3, at 8 p.m.

Subscriptions for Summer Festival 2016 range from $100-$485 with boxes and front-row packages also available. Single tickets go on sale May 22 and range from $25-$108. With the purchase of an adult subscription, one child under 14 comes free in select sections. And new this year: the award-winning caterer 24 carrots is on site to serve up an all-new menu of delicious gourmet options (from simple to elaborate!) for pre-concert dining. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org.
