Famed choreographer Mark Morris gives Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" a contemporary spin filled with laughter and brilliant dance in this Emmy-nominated production filmed live at the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. Performed to Tchaikovsky's original composition and based on the story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the reworked ballet is set in 1960s suburbia, complete with go-go boots, hip huggers and G.I. Joes.
