One great way to get into the holiday spirit is to watch shows or movies that are season specific, like The Nutcracker! I've always loved The Nutcracker myself, ever since we took a field trip in elementary school to see a live performance of it. This year, for one day only, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker will be in select theaters, and in some, 3D!!
Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker features an amazing ballet troupe, the legendary Russian Mariinsky Ballet Theater.
If you're unfamiliar with the storyline of The Nutcracker-
The Russian Imperial Mariinsky Theatre was the original home to Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker in 1892, when it made its worldwide debut. Movie theater audiences will experience the marvelous talents of two of the Mariinsky Theatre’s rising stars – Alina Somova as Clara (Masha in the original Russian ballet) and Vladimir Shklyarov as the Nutcracker. Conducted by Valery Gergiev, this timeless production of The Nutcracker opens with a Christmas Eve party and a young girl, Clara, being given a nutcracker doll by her godfather, Drosselmeyer. Later in the evening when Clara sleeps, she finds herself in the midst of the Nutcracker’s battle against the Mouse King and his army of mice. Coming to Clara’s aid, the Nutcracker is transformed into a Prince and journeys with her to an enchanted island where spectacular celebrations are held in their honor.
