The principal roles in Act 2 are performed by a handsome couple - Alina Somova (Masha the Princess) and Vladimir Shklyarov (the Nutcracker Prince). The role of young Masha is performed by a student from the Vaganova Ballet Academy. Many students from the Academy also participate in this production. They certainly know the work very well since they put on performances themselves at the Mariinsky Theatre every winter.
Valery Gergiev - not usually known as a ballet conductor - does a good job here, bringing out the beauty of the score and supporting the dancers.
I watched a 3D version of this production at a cinema a few years ago when it was first released, but was not particularly impressed by it. But, now I am happy to watch this 2D version on DVD.
