In a stunning departure from tradition, Graeme Murphy transforms Nutcracker into a production which is uniquely Australian.

The ballet is the story of Clara, once a famous Russian ballerina, who first came to Australia in the 1940s. It chronicles her turbulent, nomadic life; and is a moving tribute to all of the dedicated artists who forged the ballet tradition Australia.

Recorded live at the Arts Centre, Melbourne, Australia, 22 September 1994.
