Synopsis:  Every Christmas season, the Nutcracker Ballet is performed in cities all over the world. Getting To The Nutcracker is a behind the curtain look at what it really takes to produce this ballet each year. Director, Serene Meshel – Dillman followed the Los Angeles based, Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre, led by the former Kirov star, from auditions to final performances. You witness the joy of landing a principal role and the pain of losing one. The ballet dancers (boys and girls ages 3-18) are profiled; passionate people who, with their families, make incredible sacrifices of time and money just so that they may dance.
