Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker/ The Mouse King (Arthaus Musik: 101636) (DVD)
Good clean copy of this DVD. No problems at all.
The ballet is very different to the traditional version of Nutcracker and it takes a while to get used to the different characters and a very different story.I am not a big fan of Wayne Eagling and found the use of so many ‘gadgets’ annoying. The dancing is superb especially of the Prince and the Princess ( in this version). A young Matthew Golding making his debut with the amazing Anna Tsygankova . All in all a visual pleasure but not the best version available.
