According to director Paul Weitz, Gael Garcia Bernal actually made a full-court basket during an off-camera rehearsal. He says if they had filmed it, people probably would have thought it was CGI.
Many musicians poke fun at the oboe for attracting perhaps the most neurotic of classical musicians. After choosing an instrument already hampered by a limited range and clumsy keywork, oboists by necessity spend an inordinate amount of time bent over a table, adapting cane to create precisely scraped reeds. (Elaine Douvas, the principal oboist of the Metropolitan Opera, has shared that she keeps 80 pounds of cane in her home!)
Since Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov created their two-act ballet in 1892, The Nutcracker, the work set to Tchaikovsky's enduring score has been adapted for stage, film, TV, and even video games. Dance reimaginings have included Mark Morris's Hard Nut, Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker!, and versions in the style of burlesque.
