One must only assume that the low negative votes are from children expecting sugar plum fairies in their beds. Contemporary versions of classic production from Shakespeare to opera are relegated to the depths by some viewer watching, because of their inability to comprehend innovation from tradition.
Romeo and Juliet with its modern setting brings to the screen a new view of the story in its contemporary reality. La Boheme in the Australian production is another example.
If we step back and think, then maybe the box-office success of TITANIC when compared to the actual horror of the events will aid these uninformed viewers. A bit of 21st century education should put THE NUTCRACKER at a higher rating.
