Russian region debates Nutcracker 'occult' row - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-38652926

The authorities in a major region of Siberia are to discuss accusations by a local archbishop that The Nutcracker ballet is not a children's Christmas treat but rather a "work of the occult".
