Tchaikovsky : The Nutcracker [VOD]


Tchaikovsky : The Nutcracker

Masterpiece of classical dance this Nutcracker is a magical version of the score by Tchaikovsky filmed at the Bolshoi Theatre.

Till its première in Saint-Petersbourg in 1892, The Nutcracker is one of the most successful classical ballet and Tchaikovsky‘s score has become one of his most famous compositions.

Yuri Grigorovich deals with Hoffmann’s fantastic imagery and takes ideas from the Marius Petipa’ scenario : battle of the mice, snowflakes flurry, characters dances executed by little doll that came to life…

The most talented soloists of the Bolshoi Ballet appear in this production as Nina Kaptsova (Marie) and Artem Ovcharenko (the Nutcracker Prince) or Denis Savin (Drosselmeyer).

The Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra is conducted by Pavel Klinichev.
