This is the best Nutcracker ever. I liked the previous Royal Ballet Nutcracker with Anthony Dowell as Drosselmeier, but this one is even better, with less cape-twirling on Drosselmeier's part, the best Nutcracker dancer I have ever seen, and Miyako Yoshida just as good as before but more relaxed and natural. I'm glad that, if they only do one in Blu-ray, this is it!
I'm no great lover of ballet, but this blu-ray disc could easily change that. I've seen Russian ballet performances live, but this production blew them all away. Everything was great! If you like Christmas, the Nutcracker, fabulous music, or stellar dancing, you owe it to yourself to give this disc a look. Highly recommended.
If you are looking for a great updated copy of the Nutcracker, this is it!!! The store line stays ture to what most of us know already. I enjoyed this so much I watched it twice back to back!!! Beautiful dancing!! Just a great buy for the Nutcracker fan!!!!
