The chief attraction of this 1968 adaptation is Rudolf Nureyev, who had defected to the West in 1961.

At a Christmas party, Clara is presented with the elegant Nutcracker prince by her doting godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. The Nutcracker is broken and Clara is devastated. That night, Clara dreams about the Nutcracker prince: he comes to life, fights off a Rat King and his minions, and takes her to his kingdom

Gabriel von Eisenstein is about to begin a prison sentence for a small indiscretion. Alfred, an opera singer is serenading Eisenstein's wife, Rosalinde (Joan Sutherland) outside the Eisenstein house. Adele, the maid has just received a letter from her sister, Ida, inviting her to Price Orlofsky's ball. Dr. Falke, preparing a surprise at the ball, convinces Eisenstein to come with him that night and delay his departure for jail until morning.
