Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker / Gergiev/Mariinsky Theatre [Blu-Ray]

Album Summary

>Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich : Nutcracker, Op. 71
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Filmed in the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg where the ballet was first performed in 1892. The production, by world-renowned avant-garde artist Mikhail Shemiakin, is a more mature, "adult" version of 'The Nutcracker', highlighting many of the darker themes. The eye-catching costumes and scenery help create the surreal atmosphere. The dancing, led by Leonid Sarafanov and Irina Golub, is of the highest quality and displays the very distinctive and exacting qualities of the Mariinsky Theatre. Valery Gergiev conducts the complete, un-cut version of Tchaikovsky's most popular score.
