Monday at the Movies: George Balanchine's The Nutcracker
This holiday classic, as danced by the New York City Ballet, has been beloved for generations. A rousing snowstorm sends a blizzard of ballerinas across the stage, sweeping you to exotic locales in the enchanting Land of Sweets. You'll meet marching toy soldiers, little Marie, and the valiant Nutcracker who saves her from the villainous, seven-headed Mouse King. With Tschaikovsky's incomparable score, hundreds of dazzling costumes, a one-ton Christmas tree that magically grows and grows, and a million watts of illuminated excitement, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker is the definitive holiday must-see! This performance stars Megan Fairchild, Joaquin de Luz, Fiona Brennan, and Colby Clark. 2001. Not Rated. 120 minutes.
