Trailer for the new documentary: Getting to the Nutcracker
Do you remember your first Nutcracker? For young ballet students, the chance to perform in the classic holiday ballet simply feels magical. A documentary filmmaker recently went behind the scenes to capture that glee and giddiness at the Marat Daukayev School of Ballet in Los Angeles. Getting to the Nutcracker follows the journeys of over 400 students from first audition to final performance—all led by Daukayev, a former Kirov star.
