Conductor David Berger leads a full-scale ballet based on themes of Tchaikovsky's classic holiday piece "The Nutcracker," but this version is quite different from the original; it features the music of Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and David Berger performed by a powerful 15-piece band that really swings. The production has been performed in 5 major cities over the last 4 years. (Previously deleted: 2/1/03. Original release date: 7/28/00)
