go to Indonesia! at december there is the nutcracker performance. and it will be amazing!
@NewRedNinja I agree! I’ve seen all sorts of versions but this one is the most beautiful and wondrous!
I’ve seen quite a few versions of The Nutcracker Ballet but this is seriously my favorite one!
@acegangxox Same here! It’s is usually traditional for me and my family to go and see this every year!
I think I’ve gone to the ballet once in my life and this is what I watched, I love this!
@xBellatrixLestrangex – there are quite a few performances – but the cheaper seats do sell out quite quickly.
anyway they have released the last Harry Potter film – so you should be dead by now ?!
@amac4165 yeahh it was probably that =) it’s back this christmas??? omgg i live in london so ill definitley see it!!
@xBellatrixLestrangex – yes – the production was first staged in the 1980s or possible the late 1970s – so quite likely you have seen it already. It is back this Christmas again !
Are you sure this is 2008?
Because I think I remember watching this exact version in childhood…
I remember seeing this about 5 times when i was younger, so magical!
fantastyczne… uwielbiam balet ;-*
i actually got to be in the nutcracker twice!
I LOVE THE COSTUMES AND THE ENTIRE BALLET.
in short, I LOVE THE NUTCRACKER.
i’d burn my house to see this live.
BEST….BALLET…EVA!!! xDDDD The music makes me wanna cry.Its pure poetry.Its heavenly!!!!
you know the song from the beginning of this video? is beautiful!
@classicaladm – this production is based on the Stepanov choreographic notation of the Imperial Ballet’s original production of 1892. The choreography was by either Petipa &/or Ivanov (sources disagree). Unfortunately, Anthony Dowell changed the second act in in the late 1990’s to have Clara prancing around during the national dances.
lovely interpretion of the music, conveying the soul of the magician parted from his beloved! absolutely touching!!!
i can hear coughing in the background.
The Nutcracker was the first ballet I’ve ever seen and it was at the kodak theatre. it made me love ballet forever <3
hi, whose choreography is this production based on?
@TheDaisygirl70 No, that’s in the animated film “The Nutcracker Prince”.
3 words: best ballet ever.
That was gorgeous! We played the Nutcracker in orchestra.
And pardon my ignorance, but who is the boy who dances with Clara during the Nutcracker March and Trepak?
i used to perform this at my school and i remember one year, we had the maids assemble the presents under the Christmas tree, drop them, make a mess, and get beat up by other maids.
it was immensely enjoyable to watch
I saw this live, Royal Ballet are incredible! The whole cast was sublime and the music gave you goosebumps. I’ve been seeing the Nutcracker every year since I was 4 years old and I have to say this one was the best I’ve ever seen. Sorry to gush but it was brilliant!
