Mariinsky Theatre Musical Director, Valery Gergiev, conducts Tchaikovsky’s glorious score in this live performance of the enchanting, traditional, Russian production of The Nutcracker. Vainonen’s stunning choreography is complemented by Simon Virsaladze’s wonderfully colourful designs, and the roles of Masha and her Nutcracker Prince are danced by two of the Mariinsky’s award-winning, international soloists, all of which make this as magical and memorable a Christmas treat as ever.
The dancers include Alina Somova, Vladimir Shklyarov and Fyodor Lopukhov.
