The quintessential Christmas ballet returns to its traditional roots in this performance recorded live at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, where it originally premiered in 1892. Lavish sets and costumes, lots of crowd-pleasing virtuosic moments, plus plenty of child dancers make this a standout seasonal favourite.
