Picture: 16:9

Filmed in the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg where the ballet was first performed in 1892. The production, by world-renowned avant-garde artist Mikhail Shemiakin, is a more mature, “adult” version of The Nutcracker, highlighting many of the darker themes. The eye-catching costumes and scenery help create the surreal atmosphere. The dancing, led by Leonid Sarafanovand Irina Golub, is of the highest quality and displays the very distinctive and exacting qualities of the Mariinsky Theatre.
