Tchaikovsky’s Christmas ballet masterpiece brought kicking and screaming into the new millennium.

Because there's nothing wrong with the immortal The Nutcracker Suite that a buttload of synthesizers, disco beats and new songs can't fix, Nutcracker 2000 drags Tchaikovsky's Christmas ballet masterpiece — kicking and screaming — into the new millennium. This album was originally recorded to accompany a Cirque du Soleil-type acrobatic dance troupe, which makes perfect sense; your classical music-loving uncle will certainly contort himself into astounding shapes whenever you slap “Party Time (March),” “Sugar Plum Scary” or “Techno House of the Snow Ho's” on the family stereo!
