A classic performance,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker  [DVD] (DVD)
Baryshnikov has been one of my wife's favourite dancers since we were fortunate enough to see him perform live in New York back in the 1970s.
This may not be the best ever production of the Nutcracker but Baryshnikov's performance is magical. A bit of a nostalgia trip for us but also a disc well worth adding to the 'classic' productions shelf along with the rare recordings of Fontaine and Nureyev. A pity that the performance has been clipped to make space in the running time for US television advertising slots, but better than nothing.
Well worth having if you are a fan of Russian classical dancers.
