Publisher's Summary

No ballet speaks Christmas more than The Nutcracker, written by Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1891-2. The enchanting story was based on a fairy tale by E. T. A Hoffman called The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, but it was the dramatization by Alexandre Dumas that the composer used as the starting point for his ballet.

Little Clara, her brother Fritz, the giving of presents, the Nutcracker soldier, and toys that come to life all form the basis of the story which Tchaikovsky brought to life in one of his finest scores.

A delicious Christmas treat

Perfect narration of a glistening, gleaming, spun-sugar Christmas story. I suggest listening while walking in a snow storm at midnight—it adds to the magic. I’ll listen to this many more times I’m sure! For now, it’s time for some hot chocolate with cream while I thaw out!
