Another Holiday Fave

The first time I saw the ABT/Mikhail Baryshnikov production of the Christmas classic The Nutcracker, I was a 11 or 12. I remember being less than impressed. The sets were kind of bare...some of the costuming seemed less than dazzling. Of course that was then. Now, I realize what a masterpiece it is...because it begins and ends with the principal dancers, Baryshnikov and the mesmerizing Gelsey Kirkland. I get it out on DVD from my local library ever year because I hardly ever see it on tv anymore. If you can, do the same...


  1. I love this Nutcracker, They used to play it all the time around the holidays, but I haven't been able to catch it. Maybe I will netflix it, it is so amazing!!
