Royal Ballet Nutcracker

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I just purchased the above DVD and it's awesome. It ranks right up there with RB's Sleeping Beauty (featuring Durante) and beats Balanchine's Nutcracker hands down. However I have one question...does anyone know when the production was filmed? The inlay provides information right up to 2001, stating that Cojocaru was promoted to Principal Dancer in 2001. However, I do not recall it being filmed so late. Any input?

Thanks!

:)

Hi,

Isn't it brilliant!! It was filmed during the Nutcracker run in December 2000. But the DVD wasn't released until later.

Thank you for the answer! I was searching every nook and corner of the cover but the closest thing I got was a copyright notice '1996' which I knew was far too early since Cojocaru wouldn't have been in the ballet at that time!
