The best Nutcracker ever,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker (The Nutcracker: Royal Ballet 2009) [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
It is difficult to describe with mere words the sheer beauty and magnificence of this production. Every aspect of it is a pleasure to watch .... BUT, when the snowflakes have finished their superbly choreographed dance and the angles glide across the stage heralding the crystal sleigh of Clara and her prince taking them to a magical land it is sheer beauty and wonder.
I cannot imagine anyone not being moved by this sequence as to me it literally represents the passage of the mind from the world of reality to another place full of beauty and grace.
The production is stunning ... exactly the same as the 1985 and 2000 productions, both on disc and both I have ... BUT this is in BLURAY and the crystal clarity of the sound and picture is worth every penny of the price ... better than the best seats at Covent Garden which I can no longer afford.
Look no further, treat yourself to the very best version of this ballet by far and you will want to watch it again and again
