The Nutcracker from the Royal Ballet (#2704)
Since its first production in St. Petersburg more than a century ago, The Nutcracker's charming story, dazzling choreography and magnificent score have combined to make it one of the most popular and enduring ballets the world over. Treasured not only by traditional ballet audiences but by generations of children who have participated in its productions, this perennially beloved tale of holiday enchantment now comes to GREAT PERFORMANCES in Sir Peter Wright's unique version from the beautifully restored Covent Garden Opera. The acclaimed cast includes Ivan Putrov as the Nutcracker, Alina Cojocaru as Clara and Sir Anthony Dowell as the toy and clockmaker Herr Drosselmeyer. [116 minutes]
