At the beginning of December, I wrote about Ovation TV’s month-long Battle of the Nutcrackers. For the second year in a row, Mark Morris’ The Hard Nut is the winner! In a recent NY Times article, Claudia La Rocco wrote about the competition and Mr. Morris’ fresh take on the familiar story, where “the alcohol flows freely, among the flying fists and sexual advances”. If you missed it during the voting period, don’t worry. The Hard Nut will be shown today during Ovation TV’s Nutcracker marathon along with the other five contestants. A whole 24 hours of The Nutcracker for your viewing pleasure…Check out Ovation TV’s full schedule.
