Editor's NotePeter Tchaikovsky's THE NUTCRACKER is arguably the most famous ballet of all time, having crossed over to the realm of pop culture. Performed at hundreds of different venues around the world every Christmas, this enchanting tale of a young girl meeting her Nutcracker Prince is loved by millions. The performance recorded on this video release is very special indeed, having premiered exactly 107 years after the very first NUTCRACKER was staged. Internationally renowned choreographer Patrice Bart adds an illuminating prologue which updates the story into a modern context, and stars Nadja Saidakova and Vladimir Malakhov dance the main roles beautifully.
