Reading the title of the post, I momentarily thought they were guesting together in the same performance and I thought ???

I've never seen the POB Nutcracker -I assume it is quite different from the Bolshoi's version?

I would say it is. For one, Drosselmeyer and the Nutcracker Prince are played by the same dancer.

It’s even more complicated… The Nutcracker is another dance in fact... Well to make it short, Nureyev version is quite a Freudian interpretation of the story. When Clara is falling asleep at the end of the party, she dreams she is attacked by all kind of dangers and it’s always Drosselmeyer in a Prince costume who comes to save her as he has done as Drosselmeyer when her brother was annoying her during the evening. But at the end, when she wakes up, the party is over and it’s Drosselmeyer who is here….
