This ballet's attractions include excellent mouse costumes, a strong corps of well trained child dancers with prominent roles, and a technically superb Darci Kistler as the Sugarplum Fairy. Its down side includes special effects such as a revolving, flying bed that look clunky and archaic by today's sophisticated special-effects standards. Watch for a still relatively uncorrupted Macaulay Culkin as the Nutcracker.
