This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker / Rimsky-Korsakov: Christmas Eve [Prunella Scales] [Naxos Children's Classics] (Audio CD)
It's true that the narration style of Prunella Scales is cool and restrained, but that is entirely in keeping with the tone of her script. The music sparkles, and The Nutcracker is full of memorable tunes that children warm to. Can it hold up against all the competition for kids' attention at Christmas? I think it probably can.
