Across the country every fall, ballet companies big and small rehearse many versions of the annual favorite, 'The Nutcracker.' This film is about the children who enter the stage door to rehearse and perform today, and about those who performed during the last fifty years in George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, as presented by the New York City Ballet at the New York State Theater in Lincoln Center.

Great documentary for parents and children whom interested in learning more about what goes behind the scene to get the final job done.
This film explores the amount of efforts that take place to produce and put together a great show "The Nutcracker". It shows the sacrifices that both parents and children do in order to reach their magical dream. The ability of the Producer to capture live events without distracting the process was very successful. The time spent to follow the separated events and be able to link them together was very well done. Even though there are some disappointments during the auditioning and selection process, the end results were great. The children playing the various roles and their natural abilities made the production of this film a success. Congratulations to all participants for a very well done job.
