The Nutcracker (Bolshoi Ballet) 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

The dance is absolutely beautiful and superb but the DVD graphic/sound quality is very low because it's recorded long time ago. It has even glitches, that makes me hard to be absolved in the play.

The performers were flawless in the execution of their art. The costumes and lighting was very colorful and appropriate for each character in the act. The music was outstanding as was the dancing. It was enjoyable to watch without the usual narration provided by domestic versions, which seem to be produced for those who are unfamiliar with the story or small children.

The 1978 performance is the best Nutcracker ever recorded in my opinion (Yekaterina Mazimova as Marie aka Clara, Vladimir Vasiliev as the Nutcracker prince). The performance in 78' is very tight all around, not just the Grand Pas de Deux, but Drosselmeyer, the Mouse King, all of the variations to the waltz by corps de ballet - musicality to the nuanced story telling to stellar technicalities to the impeccable uniformity of corps de ballet - there is usually high and low points in any performances, but not this one! You just can't ask for more.
