Many years ago, Great Performances broadcasted a recording of Mark Morris' The Hard Nut. It was both a send up, tribute and serious interpretation of Hoffman's tale. I made a VHS recording of it and watched it to death.
Unfortunately PBS hasn't rebroadcasted the production nor have they released it on DVD or VOD. A full version hasn't even turned up on youtube.
All that is available is a wonderful snippet of Morris' version of The Dance of the Snowflakes.
