Ballet in Cinema & Emerging Pictures are proud to present not one, but two different productions of The Nutcracker to celebrate the 2011 holiday season.
Families sharing the joy of the holidays will love The Nutcracker from the Royal Ballet, with choreography by Peter Wright after Lev Ivanov. This now-classic production creates the world of the 19th-century onstage, with a Christmas tree that magically grows and toy soldiers that come to life! Starring Ricardo Cervara, Iohna Loots, Miyako Yoshida and Steven McRae.
The Bolshoi Ballet takes a fresh look at this wintery favorite with Yuri Grigorovich’s inventive staging. Clara’s magical nighttime journey takes on new and daring dimensions in a production that is sure to thrill balletomanes who have had their fill of the usual sugarplums! Starring Nina Kaptsova and Artem Ovcharenko.
