I used to feature Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite here yearly, but a few years ago I added the entire ballet. And here it is, featuring the ballet and orchestra of the National Opera of the Ukraine.
This is an utterly gorgeous performance.
This performance of the Suite omits the Miniature Overture but includes the number that follows the Waltz of the Flowers, which is an interesting choice.
And as always, The Nutcracker makes me think of Dr. Janice Wade.
