'A nut that Britain has already cracked - Ismene Brown reviews the Nutcracker by the touring Chisinau National Ballet.' And doesn't care much for what she sees.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>BRITAIN has become something of a world leader in Nutcrackers. The ballet is more popular here than anywhere else, performed as a sacred ritual every Christmas in at least three places. British productions are now so sure in spectacle, drama, atmosphere and dancing that only with the utmost temerity should visiting companies hope to make waves with theirs.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Hmm...I wonder what our American friends make of the first two sentences? <P><A HREF="Http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=0xGXRRrq&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/01/1/19/btdans19.html" TARGET=_blank><B>more</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited January 19, 2001).]

Three places? More than anywhere else? Quite a stunner of a statement, I should say.
