    Default Watching/Listening to the Nutcracker in 2020

    I normally see the Nutcracker live in person every year but obviously won't this year. This could maybe be a chance for me to find a good video of it. I'll at least probably listen to my favorite audio recording conducted by Bonynge. Anyone have plans for any videos of the Nutcracker to watch or recordings you want to listen to?

    I think that was the Peter Wright/Australian Ballet production from 2014. Really superb artistry except for some of the orchestral playing which was pretty ordinary at times.
