Details about The Nutcracker - Casse-Noisette |  Associated sheet music


Tckaikovsky's The Nutcracker [Casse-Noisette] is a ballet-féerie in two acts.

It was originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov.

The libretto was adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann's story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.

The Nutcracker was first performed on Sunday, 18 December 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg.

Although the original ballet production was not a success, the Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet was.

However, the ballet The Nutcracker has become, since the late 1960s, a great favorite of the Christmas season.

The Nutcracker is nowadays recognized as one of Tchaikovsky's most famous compositions.

Among other things, the Nutcracker music score is noted for its use of the celesta, an instrument that the composer had already employed in his much lesser known symphonic ballad The Voyevoda.
