TiVo Alert ~ San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5cYEAM6Te4[/youtube]

We were fortunate enough to catch an encore performance of San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker yesterday.  It was beautiful and really, really well done.  I looked on our local PBS website, and there’s only one showing left, 2AM Tuesday morning.  If you have a chance, record it.  You won’t be disappointed, even though the Nutcracker Prince has a mask that looks a bit too much like the Burger King for my taste.   It was filmed last year, and is distributed this year via Great Performances.   Of course, there’s a DVD available for the ballet lovers out there.  Enjoy.  It’s gorgeous.

  1. It’s not my favorite holiday-themed show, but I gotta say the uncle with the patch was kind of scary. And yeah, the Prince did look a little like the Burger King, uh, King.

  2. Thank you for putting us on the Great Performances. I didn’t know about the series. Now it is on my Google Reader.

    All the best to you and your family during the holidays. I wish you much happiness, continued health, and prosperity in the new year.

  3. How appropriate. My daughter is learning to play some of the pieces from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite. I had her watch this so she could see some of the ballet that goes with the work.

    Merry Christmas to you!!
