Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker Reviews
Eric Wilton from London, England
A THIN END OF THE WEDGE?
I really would like a regular Bolshoi attendee's view of this. My guess would be that it would be along the lines of "Where's the ballet?". There has to be a point where a re-staging of a classic to a modern idiom is such that it is no longer the same thing. Don't get me wrong Bourne's Nutcracker is a wonderful piece of eye candy and the reframing of the story is of benefit. The choreography is imaginative and pleasing but there is so little ballet in this production that this is one instance, IMHO, where it doesn't do "what it says on the bottle".
