|Angels and sugarplums, a magic prince, a dreamy young girl, a mysterious old man and a Christmas tree that grows sky high. Enter the world of this enhanting new version of the timeless Yuletide fantasy, featuring the New York City Ballet and narrated by Kevin Kline.|
Macaulay Culkin (Nutcracker Prince) joins Darci Kistler (Sugarplum Fairy), Damian Woetzel (Cavalier), Kyra Nichols (Dewdrop), Bart Robinson Cook (Drosselmeier) and Jessica Lynn Cohen (Marie) for a sparkling movie directed by Emile Ardolino (Sister Act, Gypsy). The gift of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker is the loveliest you'll find under any tree.
