Fantasia – 1940
The production that brought the music of the Nutcracker to a North American audience didn’t even have a vision of the Nutcracker, or Clara. Instead Disney gave us animated fairies, flowers, and mushrooms dancing to pieces of the Nutcracker Suite.
The Nutcracker Prince – 1990
The 1990 animated version of The Nutcracker Prince is what I remember being my first exposure to the world of dancing candies and fighting mice. With Kiefer Sutherland as the voice of the Nutcracker, this animated film could be found around Christmas time on the T.V of many children who grew up in the 90’s.
Barbie in the Nutcracker - 2001
"If you're kind, clever, brave and true, anything is possible" - Barbie in the Nutcracker
North America's most popular doll stars as herself and Clara in what many see as Barbie's first full length feature film.
The Nutcracker on Ice - Various
If ballet isn't your style, you can still see a live performance of the Nutcracker at Christmas. Just as dancing and performing can be done one stage, it can also be done on skates!
Stay tuned to the blog for a new Rehearsal Recap on Monday!
