Arms spread wide

In 1816, Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann wrote a novella called “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” It was favorably received by the public at the time, and in 1844 it was adapted by Alexandre Dumas into a story called “The Tale of the Nutcracker.”

In 1890, the famous composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was commissioned to do an opera and a ballet. For the ballet, he decided to employ the help of the renowned ballet dancer and choreographer Marius Petipa, who suggested Dumas’s adaptation as the perfect premise for their production.

Dancing on tiptoes

The ballet was eventually called “The Nutcracker” and it made its debut in 1892. Reviews were mixed at the time, however over the subsequent years its popularity grew when it was adapted by western theater companies, especially in the UK and the US.
