The Nutcracker is a two act ballet which was adopted from E.T.A Hoffman’s story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King". The original version of the ballet was put in stage in 1892, but it failed to please ballet fans and was not much of a success. It was not until the 1960s that the ballet underwent some changes and it took to fame. Now, many years later, The Nutcracker is considered one of the most famous ballets in the industry and is loved by people for the magic and charm that it showcases on the stage. In fact all the major ballet companies in the country earn forty percent of their revenues from the performances of The Nutcracker, especially during the Christmas season. The story of The Nutcracker revolves around a girl, Clara, who is given a Nutcracker as a Christmas present and how the Nutcracker takes her on a enchanting night during the delightful Christmas season.
