Kirov Ballet's 'The Nutcracker'
OK. So I've been banging on about Ballet most of this year. I guess I'm newly-addicted. I went to see the Kirov Ballet's 'Nutcracker' screening today at Cinema Nova in Carlton. It was the most spectacular performance I've seen of this Christmas story so far. Lavish sets & amazing costumes. The snowflakes in 'Waltz of the snowflakes' were the best. Black tutus instead of the traditional white but heavily jeweled with glistening white snowballs. Wonder when the Russian Ballet plans to tour Australia again? Soon I hope....
