Rate this:
From an imperial-era Russian Christmas party, a young girl named Clara is whisked in her dreams to an imaginary world populated by the animated creations of the wizard toy maker Drosselmeier. Clara innocently develops a crush on the imaginary Nutcracker prince. Upon her arrival in the Land of the Sweets, she dances a yearning pas de deux with the Nutcracker Prince. It makes the ballet far more interesting. The frequent involvement of Drosselmeyer throughout the ballet reinforces a magical effect.

I loved the Nutcracker, when Clara and her young prince dancing together. I image myself that I was Clara and with him dancing away. When the prince kissed her both hands, is my favorite. Last final Clara and the Prince dance in Pas De Deux, may have looked they danced in love.
It is a wonderful movie, I don't find it very boring at all.

Absolutely best movie of all.

I am a fan of Baryshnikov . You can easily gleam what an amazing dancer he is.

I didn't enjoy this performance thought. Probably because this was a shortened program and probably because of the video quality.
