The Nutcracker Ballet

Celebrate Christmas with an online video of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. The VAST Academic Video Online collection has two versions: one by the San Francisco Ballet (2007), the other by the Royal Ballet (2001).

Films on Demand also features a 2009 production from the Royal Opera House.

If you like ballet, you have several options, including an excerpt of ballerina Maria Tallchief coaching a dancer in the Sugar Plum Fairy with Balanchine's choreography (1996).

Both VAST and Films on Demand are subscription databases, available to students, faculty, and staff at Christian Brothers University.
