Maurice Bejart has taken his own impression of Tchaikovsky's greatly loved ballet, and turned it into a work of personal significance. Using the original score, but augmenting it with waltz and accordion music, Bejart evokes memories of his own childhood -- transporting the setting from St. Petersburg to Marseilles. Recorded at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.
Description by Image Entertainment:
The showman of twentieth-century dance, Maurice Bejart presents his unique version of the well-loved Christmas ballet "The Nutcracker." Using Tchaikovsky's score in its entirety, augmented with popular waltz and accordion music performed on-stage by the legendary Yvette Horner, Bejart takes the original St. Petersburg story as a springboard from which to evoke the memories, emotions and feelings of his own life's journey from a Marseille childhood. Recorded live at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.
