Okay, so I said I wasn’t going to post on the 27th, but I saw the Bolshoi’s Nutcracker last week via HD transmission and was completely transfixed. I hadn’t seen this ballet since I was in high school, and it felt totally fresh and new. And magical. A great way to come to the end of the year and think about all the possibilities for 2012. Happy New Year!

[If you don’t have time to watch all 12:55 minutes of the clip, move ahead to about 11:30 minutes to see the magnificent leaping red prince. Wow!]

Check in next week for more from TFCB!
