Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker and the Mouseking, choreography by Toer van Schayk & Wayne Eagling / Anna Tsygankova, Matthew Golding, James Stout. Dutch National Ballet; Holland Symfonia, Ermanno Florio [DVD]

Conductor Ensemble

Notes & Reviews:

In 1996 the Dutch National Ballet presented its own version of the famous fairytale ballet for the first time. It is a magical production that has won the hearts of more than 250,000 people to date. Choreographers Toer van Schayk and Wayne Eagling created a Nutcracker for the children and adults of today. It is more dynamic and exciting, and less sweet than usual. They also chose to give a Dutch twist to their interpretation of the story, with skaters on the canals and a living room that transforms into a snowy forest. Unlike the original story, the production by Eagling and Van Schayk (who also designed the delightful sets and costumes) does not take place on Christmas Eve in a German town, but during St. Nicholas celebrations in Amsterdam, around 1810.
