kshandra: illustration of the classic drama masks (Comedy/Tragedy)
[personal profile] murphymom and I went to the Fathom Events screening of The Nutcracker as performed by the Bolshoi Ballet, originally recorded in 2014.



I was surprisingly underwhelmed. )
I will say it wasn't all a letdown. I appreciated the fact that the Nutcracker doll was performed by a different, younger dancer, to make the transformation into the Prince all the more dramatic. I loved the behind-the-scenes footage we got before each act, with the dancers wearing leggings, down vests, etc., to keep their muscles warm before going on (including one person who I swear I saw wearing a Pikachu onesie). And getting to see the building itself was a treat.

In all, it was a good way to spend time with my mother for her birthday...but I think next year I may look for a local live production that doesn't cost the earth.
