The Nutcracker is Mikhail Baryshnikov's breathtaking and critically acclaimed Emmy nominated production. This spectacular performance is danced by the magnificent team of Baryshnikov, one of the greatest classical dancers of the century, and Gelsey Kirkland, both showcased at the peak of their careers, with members of the American Ballet Theatre.

The Nutcracker is the magical and lighthearted story of a small girl's dream on Christmas Eve. Mikhail Baryshnikov is the toy Nutcracker-turned-Prince in this exhilarating production that marked his initial and universally acclaimed choreographic effort. Gelsey Kirkland, is little Clara - the dreamer and Alexander Minz is Drosselmeyer, the wizard who conjures up the dream and eventually dispels it.

Extravagant sets and costumes bring the beauty of this winter wonderland to life. The magical aspects will delight children, while the spectacular sets and performances will enchant and delight the child in all of us. Celebrated by critics and public alike, Baryshnikov's The Nutcracker, delivers a brilliant and sparkling adaptation of the famous E.T.A. Hoffman tale along with Tchiakovsky's classic score.

The athleticism and precision of Mikhail Baryshnikov's solo variations will make you gasp and take your breath away. The Nutcracker, a holiday perennial on public television, is a truly remarkable treasure that will be enjoyed by all, for generations to come.
