Bolshoi Ballet: The Nutcracker
Bolshoi Ballet: The Nutcracker
The Nutcracker speaks to the child in everyone, with its happy dreams of snow, presents, adventures, toys and wishes ful lled. Despite Tchaikovsky’s most addictive score, the original 1892 ballet was considered a failure, too much plot in the rst act, not enough plot in the second. Yuri Grigorovich’s 1966 staging at the Bolshoi, designed by Simon Virsaladze, revised the incomplete scenario to focus on the dreams of the teenaged Masha, who receives a nutcracker doll from her godfather at her family’s Christmas party. Sneaking down at night to her doll, Masha is swept up in a magical transformation where the Christmas tree grows to huge size and rats ght an epic battle with the toys. The chance to see the legendarily captivating Ekaterina Maximova as Masha, alongside her great husband, Vladimir Vasiliev, as the Nutcracker, makes this 1978 live recording, digitally restored and remastered to HD quality, essential viewing.
