12/9/18 O&A NYC 15 DAYS OF NUTCRACKER: Balanchine’s Nutcracker (1958) Featuring George Balanchine, Diane Adams, Allegra Kent and Arthur Mitchell

This 1958 CBS broadcast put The Nutcracker firmly on the map in the USA and made it a Christmas staple. Balanchine’s masterful story telling and genius choreography has made his version the gold standard the world over.

Here danced by a stellar cast of that day this ballet still stands up fantastically well nearly 60 years later. Other credits include the “Stahlbaums” were Una Kai and Roland Vasquez; the “Girl Doll,” Judith Friedman, the “Boy Doll”, Neima Zweili (sp?); the “Toy Soldier was Roy Tobias.
