The history of the Nutcracker
In 1816, E.T.A Hoffmann wrote one of his most popular stories, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Almost three decades later, it was revised by French writer Alexander Dumas. His version of the story was soon converted into a libretto which was later choreographed by two of the most accomplished ballet masters of all time, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was then asked to provide the score for the ballet. In 1892, the Nutcracker was staged for the first time at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg. Since then, many famous choreographers have come up with their own versions of this beautiful ballet including, George Balanchine.
George Balanchine: The Nutcracker
George Balanchine premiered his version of The Nutcracker at the City Center in New York in 1954. Based on the original plot, Balanchine’s adaptation is the most popular one. His version is different from the original in many ways as he changed the name of the lead characters and also introduced his own ballet styles, techniques and movements.
Balanchine’s adaption of the Nutcracker is now going to be performed at the McCaw Hall this holiday season. So, will you be watching it live when this famous theatrical masterpiece comes to town?
