    For those who missed last holiday's Nutcracker, here is is:

    [mov]http://www.garritan.com/nutplayer.swf[/mov]


    Last year the Northwest Ballet danced to the Personal Orchestra rendition of this time-honored classic. This entire full-length production was almost two hours and performed at the historic Mount Baker Theatre in Bellingham, WA (a beautiful opulent and ornate 1,500 seat theatre built in the 1920's).

    Here's the link to our Nutcracker page:

    A special thank you to those who worked so hard to sequence the music for this successful performance, especially to Jim Ortner who did almost the entire sequencing for the show. Thanks to Francesco Marchetti, Robert Davis, Frank Spitznagel and Tom Hopkins for their contributions to the music. Thanks also to John Biship who shared the vision for this sequenced production of the Nutcracker. John Bishop, has been a professional dancer, choreographer, and teacher for over 30 years and has danced for many years with the American Ballet Theatre in New York as well as with major ballet companies throughout the world. An also thanks to the dancers for gracing this music with their talent. And thanks PapaChalk for making it possible to embed this player in the forum.

    Enjoy the music and Merry Christmas!

    Re: The Nutcracker

    Maybe it's because The Nutcracker was the first theatre performance experienced when I was a wee little lad? Maybe deep down I miss the stage, the orchestra pit, the lights, all the rehearsals, props, crew, cast, tears, fears, arguments, worries, budget cuts, fundraisers, costumes, opening nights, closing nights, cast parties, award picnics, Christmas shows and parties, long hours transposing parts, vocal rehearsals, auditions and more auditions, the sound, the musicians, and the audience.

    Ah yes ... ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz huh? What da? Ooooo, bad dream.......ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzz

    Let the music begin!

    Hi Jim,

    Great job. Yes, I too was surprised to find the player here on the site still. Is there a way to download these mp3's, or does the player block that?

    Regards,
    Trond
