highlights from Nutcracker

I searched for the best highlights that I could include for you, so here are a few of the wonderful parts of the Nutcracker that I hope you might enjoy. It’s more fun if you can see the ballet in its entirety, so don’t miss a production at your local performing arts theater or rent one to watch. These excerpts are from various ballet companies.

If you like anything but traditional, you may enjoy what Mark Morris and Matthew Bourne have done with the Nutcracker. They both approach it from a playful and wacky perspective, inspiring more laughter than reverence with their unique versions.
