In going back to the original master tape and using cutting edge encoding technology we are able to maximize the quality of this new presentation of The Nutcracker in High Definition.

The Nutcracker is Mikhail Baryshnikov’s breathtaking and critically acclaimed Emmy® nominated production.

This spectacular performance is danced by the magnificent team of Baryshnikov, one of the greatest classical dancers of our time, and Gelsey Kirkland, both showcased at the peak of their

The Nutcracker is the magical story of a small girl’s dream on Christmas Eve. Mikhail Baryshnikov is the toy Nutcracker-turned-Prince in this exhilarating production that marked his initial and universally acclaimed choreographic effort. Gelsey Kirkland is little Clara, the dreamer, and Alexander Minz is Drosselmeyer, the wizard who conjures up the dream and eventually dispels it.

Extravagant sets and costumes bring the beauty of this winter wonderland to life. The magical aspects will delight children, while the spectacular sets and performances will enchant and delight the child in all of us.

Celebrated by critics and public alike, Baryshnikov’s The Nutcracker delivers a brilliant and sparkling adaptation of the famous E.T.A. Hoffmann tale along with Tchaikovsky’s classic score.
