Aided by Tschaikovsky's imcomparable score and George Balanchine's masterful choreography, the valiant Nutcracker saves Little Marie from the villainous Seven-Headed Mouse King. Lincoln Center is illuminated by a million watts of energy as the New York City Ballet brings a blizzard of ballerinas, marching toy soldiers, hundreds of dazzling costumes and a Christmas tree that magically grows and grows, making this live one-night-only show a must see holiday event. Kelly Ripa takes audiences in over 550 theaters nationwide behind the scenes with interviews of the principal dancers and others. [DVD]
