George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker is one of the most popular events for the family around Christmas. The American Ballet Theater’s version of this Tchaikovsky classic has become a holiday tradition on PBS stations and home video. It stars Mikhail Baryshnikov at his absolute peak, and Gelsey Kirkland as Clara.
