Gaga for Glockenspiel

When: Sun., Dec. 15 2013

Attention ballet fans: You know how Cleveland Cinemas sometimes hosts operas on the big screen? Well, now you’ve got a chance to see some ballet. Thank heaven! The Russian Imperial Mariinsky Theatre was the original home to Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker in 1892, when it made its worldwide debut, and that’s where they filmed this incredible performance in 2011. It’s playing at the Cedar Lee Theatre at 11 this morning. Nothing like Tchaikovsky and that famous glockenspiel to get you in the holiday spirit. It’s only 105 minutes too, so it’s not like you’ll be sitting for a four-hour slog. (A 3D version will also screen at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the Cedar Lee Theatre, if you like your ballet to really pop.) (Allard)
