Wrap up the presents
The original story was called “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and was written by a Prussian writer, Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann. He is considered one of the greatest writers of the nineteenth century, and was famous for writing fantastical and magical tales, that had a tendency to be a little gruesome in their details.
His version and the subsequent ballet, both follow relatively similar stories, with just a few changes made to dialogue, names and the relationship between characters. It begins on Christmas Eve, with two siblings opening their presents, while a party goes on around them. They are really happy with their numerous gifts, particularly the ones from their godfather, inventor and magician Drosselmeyer. He has brought the children lifelike dolls that move around in a mechanical clockwork castle, as well as their favorite toy, a nutcracker.
The nutcracker manages to break during the party, yet when one of the main characters of the story goes to check up on him, it turns out that he has in fact come to life. Thus follows a series of adventures that culminate in the magical Land of the Sweets.
Time for the holidays
In 1890, after the success of his previous stage show, the great composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was asked to come up with a new show, which would incorporate elements of both an opera and a ballet. So he decided to seek help from the legendary choreographer Marius Petipa, who was in turn assisted by the popular Lev Ivanov. They decided to use Hoffman’s story, but decided to simplify it for younger audiences. The premier of the show took place in 1892 and earned mixed reviews, while it made its international debut in England in 1934. It enjoyed its first great success under the San Francisco Ballet, and its great run has prompted them to revive the show almost every year since.
Now that the Moscow Ballet is bringing this story back to the big stage, here is the chance all fans have been waiting for. With a plethora of talented dancers and actors from across the world this is one of the greatest ballet companies today.
