There are countless performances of The Nutcracker out there. This one has always been my favorite. Excellent performance, superb sound quality. What more can you ask for? If you’ve been looking for a copy of The Nutcracker, this is the one you want.

Although the original production was not a success, the twenty-minute suite that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet was. However, the complete Nutcracker has enjoyed enormous popularity since the late 1960s and is now performed by countless ballet companies, primarily during the Christmas season, especially in the US.
