The Nutcracker premiered in 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg. Back then it was choreographed by Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa with music by Tchaikovsky. It is adapted from Alexander Dumas’ version of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A Hoffman.

The New York City Ballet first performed The Nutcracker in 1954 at the City Center of Music and Drama. While the music used was still by Tchaikovsky, the choreography was now by George Balanchine. Balanchine, called the father of American ballet, is the co-founder of the New York City Ballet and was its Artistic Director for around 35 years.


The Nutcracker opens on Christmas Eve and follows a young girl named Clara as she witnesses a battle between gingerbread soldiers led by the Nutcracker and mice led by their king. Clara saves the Nutcracker who then turns into a prince. They go on to the Kingdom of the Sugarplum Fairy to partake in a celebration in honor of Clara.
