    Director Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion) brings Tchaikovsky’s classic musical fantasy (derived from the E.T.A. Hoffmann story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King) to screen in Nutcracker, The Motion Picture featuring members of the Pacific Northwest Ballet. 

    Nutcracker, The Motion Picture is the story of the mysterious toymaker Drosselmeier (Hugh Bigney), his beautiful toy theater and the lovely Clara (Vanessa Sharp), a young girl who dreams of dancing with a prince. In classic fairy tale fashion, these will all come together in the delightful tale of an enchanted Nutcracker, a Mouse King and a charming Prince.

    Nutcracker, The Motion Picture is directed by Carroll Ballard, conceived by Kent Stowell and Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are), photographed by Stephen H. Burum (The Outsiders, The Untouchables) with the music of Tchaikovsky conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.

      This is the best version of The Nutcracker that I have had the privilege of viewing. The sets are magnificent, the acting/dancing is top notch. Unlike some recent Nutcrackers which have been purposly light and fluffy, the ballet company here presents a darker vision of growing up/growing out of childhood. I love it and am so glad it is available on DVD.
