Default Best Nutcracker need help

Hi Classical fans,

I need your help. I am looking for the BEST recording (available) of the Nutcracker ( full ballet). What I am looking for is the recording that is the most dramatic and with the biggest orchestra sound. My test of this is the Grand finale. The apotheosis. This should have all the Tchaikowsky characteristics of the crash and boom of the symbals and orchestra. I would like to hear your recommendations. For example: Bernstein (new york phil) would probably fit the bill but there is no full ballet recording available. What are your recommendations? Thank you.

On the "Ovation" TV channel they've been having this competition where they show a different nutcracker each week and then by the end of them month they choose the best. I haven't been following it but here's some links that might help you:
