Rudolf Nureyev, Merle Park & The Royal Ballet - Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker (DVD/Blu-ray)

Explore Rudolf Nureyev’s dreamlike interpretation of The Nutcracker. In his imaginative retelling of a 19th-century classic, the young Clara is propelled by dark forces from the realm of childhood into a radiant kingdom where she takes center stage. Clara’s surreal journey reflects the hopes and dreams of a young girl on the cusp of adulthood, her transformation evoked by the whirling snowflakes and glittering sugar of Tchaikovsky’s famous score. This 1968 recording is a golden opportunity to watch a great historical performance from The Royal Ballet featuring the illustrious pairing of Rudolf Nureyev and Merle Park.
