Additional information Characters and performers Synopsis Act I Guests are gathering for a Christmas party at the Stahlbaum home. Among them are Drosselmeyer, godfather to Marie and Fritz, the Stahlbaums children. He has brought them a wonderful present: a funny Nutcracker. The children wait with impatience for when at long last they will be shown the Christmas tree and the presents. The long awaited moment comes: the handsomely adorned Christmas tree is presented to the assembled company. Drosselmeyer suddenly appears disguised as a magician: he is not recognized by the children. Their unknown guests ability to make their toys come alive delights the children but, as everything that is clad in mystery, it involuntarily arouses their fear. In order to calm them down, Drosselmeyer takes off his mask and the children now recognize their beloved godfather. Marie wants to play with the wonderful dolls which have come alive, but they have already been tidied away. To comfort Marie, Drosselmeyer gives her the Nutcracker-Doll. Marie takes a great liking to this awkward, funny creature. Maries brother Fritz, who is a great tease and very naughty, accidentally breaks the doll. With great tenderness, Marie comforts her injured Nutcracker and rocks it backwards and forwards. Fritz and his friends now put on mouse masks and tease poor Marie. The guests appear from an adjoining room. After the final, ceremonial Grossvater dance, they all leave. At night the room where the Christmas tree stands is bathed in moonlight. It looks mysterious and full of magical secrets. Overcoming her fears, Marie has come to the room to visit her ‘sick Nutcracker-Doll. She kisses the doll and rocks it. Drosselmeyer now appears. But instead of her kind godfather, he has turned into a wizard. At a wave of his hand everything around them is transformed: the walls of the room slide back, the Christmas tree starts to grow. And all the toys come alive and grow together with the tree. Suddenly, mice creep out from under the floorboards, led by the Mouse King. The dolls are panic-stricken and thrown into confusion. The Nutcrackers quick wits and bravery save the day: lining up the lead soldiers, he boldly leads them out to do battle with the mice forces. However, the forces are unequal, the advantage is on the side of the evil mice. The Nutcracker is left alone to face the Mouse King and his suite. Marie is out of her mind with worry over the danger that threatens her doll. At this very moment, Drosselmeyer hands her a lighted candle and she throws it at the mice who scurry away helter-skelter. The battle field empties. The only person left here is the Nutcracker who lies without moving on the floor. Marie, together with the dolls, hurries to his rescue. And now a miracle occurs…Before Marie stands a handsome youth, the Nutcracker-Prince. He walks forward to meet her. The walls of the house disappear. Marie and her friends are standing under a star-studded sky, by a fairy-tale Christmas tree. Snowflakes go round in a magical dance. Marie and her Nutcracker-Prince, beckon, as if to a beautiful dream, to the twinkling star at the top of the Christmas tree. They climb into a magic boat and set off for the top of the tree. The dolls follow behind them. Act II Marie and Nutcracker-Prince are sailing in their magic boat through the Christmas tree kingdom. There are their friends, the dolls with them. The shining star is getting closer and closer. They are just about to reach the top of the tree when they are suddenly attacked by the mice and the Mouse King who have crept up behind them. Once again, the Nutcracker-Prince goes boldly into battle. Horribly frightened, Marie and the dolls watch the fight. The Nutcracker-Prince vanquishes the enemy. Joyous victory celebrations are underway. The dolls dance, the candles burn even brighter, the Christmas tree comes alive. The evil mice have been defeated. Marie and the Nutcracker-Prince are radiant with happiness - they have reached the kingdom of their dreams! But it appears all this was just a dream. Christmas Eve is over and with it all wonderful reveries. Marie, still in the thrall of the fabulous dream, is sitting at home by the Christmas tree, with the Nutcracker-Doll on her lap. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without The Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker. Come and enjoy Mary and Franz's wonderful adventures as they meet a magician with strange secrets, join an army of valiant toy soldiers to fight a villainous Mouse King and take a trip to a land where everything is made of sweets. This really is an evening of magic: classical ballet at its most visually entrancing, with something to appeal to everyone, young and old. Tchaikovsky's sparkling, effervescent score contains a wealth of famous melodies, and the production is a visual delight from start to finish. Come and experience some special magic this Christmas and into the New Year. Synopsis Act I Guests are gathering for a Christmas party at the Stahlbaum home.

Bolshoi ballet the nutcracker (live 2018. This was phenomenal! I just watched it as a stream in the Cinema, but even than it was amazing! Was smiling through the whole presentation. Bravo to the Orchestra, the dancers and the choreographers! What an amazing evening! Thank you!☺. Normal speed: the definition of elegance double speed: my 5-year-old self after being hopped up on sugar. T he Bolshoi is one of the worlds great powerhouses of classical ballet. Even after the intrigue and scandal that has dogged it in recent years, the company – now under director Vladimir Urin and ballet director Makhar Vaziev – continues to look as sharp as a razor, its dancers demonstrating, as ever, the grand, dramatic, “bolshoi” (“big”) performance style that has long been its calling-card. Even if you werent lucky enough to snaffle tickets for this summers Covent Garden residency – or indeed ever to have made it over to Russia to see the company at its central-Moscow home – there is now a tempting alternative. This winter, several of the Bolshois core productions – from those 19th-century staples The Nutcracker to Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake, and several contemporary works – will be broadcast live into British cinemas from the recently restored Bolshoi theatre, just up from Red Square. Not only will this allow you to catch this centuries-old company as close as possible to where you live; you wont have to fork out for the punitive cost of a Moscow hotel, or indeed get to grips with the no-less-punitively involved application form for a Russian visa. Which is to say that, for anyone with an even passing interest in dance, this coming season is a thrilling prospect indeed. T his production of The Nutcracker is the unique version by Bolshois historical ballet master Yuri Grigorovich, who will turn 90 years old on January 2, 2017. There is no more magical music in ballet than Tchaikovskys score, which tinkles and scintillates, and soothes every care away. There is no happier sight than the Sugar Plum Fairy in her Kingdom of Sweets, which through the most visually inventive stage wizardry transports every watcher, of any age, to an ideal childhood. For what could be more joyful than a story of a child who dreams of her toys coming to life and taking her to fairyland? Yet it is amazing that The Nutcracker survived at all. Its 1892 premiere in St Petersburg became a nightmare for its creators, rather than a dream. The story was taken from a spooky tale by ETA Hoffmann, and Tchaikovsky and choreographer Marius Petipa had been planning the ultimate in fabulous and strange experiences – the young heroine would ride in a boat drawn by dolphins spouting crystals; the snowflakes would be made dazzling by the discovery of electric lighting; there would be pavilions of barley-sugar and gold-spangled palm trees… But as compromises mounted with the libretto, Tchaikovsky became wretched and Petipa fell ill, handing over to his assistant Lev Ivanov. Though most of the choreography is lost, Ivanovs Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy so fitted the sparkling delicacy of the music that it is still the most anticipated moment in the ballet. I n fact, the original creations imperfection has been the key to The Nutcrackers immortality. Every production must dream up its own view on the elusive fantasy. So sometimes Clara is a little girl, sometimes a teenager who turns into the Sugar Plum Fairy herself – a tradition in Russia. In the Soviet era, The Nutcracker was recast as an opportunity to display the modern vigour of Russian dancing; British and American stagings enhanced the wish-fulfilment, even the darker aspects of Hoffmanns old story. But The Nutcrackers abiding enchantment is its music, to which the child in every one of us responds. Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker will be broadcast to cinemas around the UK.

Beautiful. Bolshoi ballet 3a the nutcracker lyrics. Bolshoi ballet 3a the nutcracker movie. Thank you for the beautiful compilation. Not sure, though, Phrygia shows Anna at her best. Although, after Maximova no one looks good enough in this role imho, so I might be biased. I prefer the tragic ending. I dunno. The Siegfried fighting Rothbart and restoring Odette's human form ending seems kinda off. I loved to watch this, the dancers were amazing, but I disliked the adaptation.
Bolshoi ballet the nutcracker. Bolshoi ballet the nutcracker 2019. 1:28:51 my jaw dropped. Working under contract means they are now hired per production, not an official part of the company. For an older dancer, it is a way to retire gracefully instead of stopping all at once. After a while, your body can only take so much each day, and a full-time dancer is often in performance for one show while rehearsing the next one (or more. A dancer under contract can concentrate on one show at a time, and keep dancing for a little longer, if not continuously on stage. Shes wearing to much makeup. Bolshoi ballet the nutcracker encore.

Photos Add Image Add an image Do you have any images for this title? Edit Storyline Very much like the other two Bolshoi versions choreographed by Grigorovich. However, this is the only one of the three versions shot on widescreen and HD, so the colors are far more vivid and the picture practically jumps out at you, despite the fact that it's not in 3-D. The same sets (or exact duplicates of them) are used, but they don't look as shabby as in the earlier Bolshoi versions. The costumes are only very slightly different. Two minor changes have been made to the choreography. In the second act, the Nutcracker Prince and the Mouse King (who does not die onscreen in this production) do not descend through a trap door in the floor. Instead, the Nutcracker Prince chases the Mouse King offstage and returns a few minutes later triumphantly holding the King's crown. The end is also slightly different. As in the usual Bolshoi version, in the dream, Marie marries her Nutcracker Prince, but then abruptly wakes up. However, in this revised production, rather than waking up alone.

Swan Lake? Nutcracker? excuse my lack of knowledge) 2 - Is there a certain choreographer/director that I should be looking for? 3 - This might be a Christmas present, so is there anything famous/good in January/February/March? Thanks very much in advance.

I recently fell in love with the [Royal Ballet's. I think the Nutcracker Prince is SO CUTE! In this version. It made me want to look around and discover how well this production held up to others. As a child, I would watch [this version. all the time. I've heard that this has the original staging of the ballet? Or at least, the one that made it so popular. I'm trying to stay away from the [San Francisco Ballet's production. because I REALLY hope to see it one day. I live around the bay area. I just haven't talked anyone into going with me, yet. I've heard that [Baryshnikov's. is very good. I'm very excited because I am going to see him dance at the Berkeley Rep on Valentine's Day. I keep hearing the [Bolshoi production. is good, but I never hear more than that. Are there any that I am missing? Any links to videos? Advice? Opinions? I've recently began obsessing over ballet. I think The Nutcracker is a good place to start. I plan on moving on to Swan Lake and Giselle. Thank you! EDIT: I just found out about Ovations! Battle of the Nutcrackers. Information taken from [Wikipedia. Ever since 2007, Ovation TV has held their annual "Battle of the Nutcrackers" viewing contest, giving their audience a choice of which Nutcracker to choose as the best. In 2007, the competitors were George Balanchine's The Nutcracker (the 1993 film version with the New York City Ballet and Macaulay Culkin) Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker, Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! and Mark Morris' The Hard Nut. The Hard Nut was the winner. In 2008, the competition included six competitors: Matthew Bournes Nutcracker! Bolshoi Ballets The Nutcracker, the 1993 film version of George Balanchines The Nutcracker, Nutcracker: The Motion Picture (with designs and costumes by Maurice Sendak) Bejarts Nutcracker, and Mark Morris The Hard Nut. The Hard Nut won for a second year. In Ovation's 2009 Battle, the competitors were Mark Morris The Hard Nut, London Royal Ballet's The Nutcracker, Ballet of Monte Carlo's Casse Noisette Circus (Casse Noisette is French for Nutcracker) Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker, and Maurice Bejart's Nutcracker. Once again, the winner was The Hard Nut. The 2010 "Battle of the Nutcrackers" began its run on December 6, 2010. It included two very traditional versions - the 1989 Bolshoi Ballet's Nutcracker and the 2009 Royal Ballet Nutcracker - as well as the Berlin State Opera Ballet's Nutcracker, Maurice Bejart Nutcracker, and Ballet of Monte Carlo's Casse Noisette Circus. The winner was the Royal Ballet version. The 2011 lineup included the following competitors: Mariinsky's The Nutcracker, London Royal Ballet's The Nutcracker, Berlin State Opera Ballet's Nutcracker, Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker, and Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker. An additional version, Nutcracker: The Story of Clara, another radical reworking of the ballet, was also telecast. As in 2010, the Royal Ballet version was the winner. For 2012, contestants included the following: London Royal Ballet's The Nutcracker, Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker, Nutcracker: The Story of Clara, two Mariinsky Nutcrackers (2008 and 2012 respectively) and San Francisco Ballet's The Nutcracker. The winner was the San Francisco version. For 2013, the contestants once again included Mariinsky's 2012 Nutcracker, Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! Nutcracker: The Story of Clara, and San Francisco Ballet's The Nutcracker. The winner, shown on December 23, was the San Francisco version. So far, the Baryshnikov Nutcracker, which is perhaps the bestselling version on DVD, has never been one of the contestants. DEFINITELY will be checking all of these out.
