The Royal Ballet's version is beautiful in its design and colorscheme...it's photography and its sound, not to mention the dancing...This version, like Baryshnikov's makes Clara older, and puts Drosselmeyer in the center of the action throughout. The only cut is the Mother Gigone/Gingermusic, which i missed. Nice extras here too, showing the behind the scenes magic
