All streaming Nutcrackers in one place!

There's this:

The Nutshell in 2020—A Dance and Music Nutcracker Celebration


There are different casts, but no listing of performers for the available casts. I know that SFB's Tiit Helimets and Sasha De Sola are dancing some Val Caniparoli choreography in one of these casts (maybe the Poinsettia cast).

Mikhailovsky Ballet will be streaming Nacho Duato's Nutcracker on New Year's eve.



 On 31 December, at noon and 6 pm (Moscow time) on our Youtube channel, in our social networks, and on the website of the Mikhailovsky Theatre you can watch the ballet that has become the main symbol of winter holidays. Anastasia Smirnova and Leonid Sarafanov will star in the main roles.

Final message from SFB:

Going, Going, Almost Gone!


We're in the final stretch of Nutcracker Online and we don't want you to miss out on a single thing. Purchase a pass and you'll have 48 hours to watch this delightful ballet in HD and goof around in an unimaginable world we've created in a virtual Opera House. Don't be a humbug! Get cozy on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate, click play, and enjoy the holiday magic. 

Act now—it all ends on Thursday, December 31.

It's a little late to still be talking about The Nutcracker, but I wanted to give props to Berkeley Ballet Theater for the way they organized their streaming Nutcracker. Rather than choose the last year's or a given year's production, they pieced together video from a number of years (per BBT's Youtube account, 30 years' worth!). So in a given scene, you'd see a 32 bars from one year, the next 32 bars from another year, etc. There was text added to the video so you knew which year the clip was from.  It was neat to see how the choreography changed over the years depending on the dancers in the production - the Spanish divertissement as an ensemble (5(?) girls and 1 boy), as a trio of girls, as a pair of boys (maybe there were girls in that one too, but not in the clip), and as a pas de deux. 

I'm sure the students, parents, and alumni enjoyed the compilation. Such a great idea!
