Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Choreographer George Balanchine's production of Tschaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker has become the most famous stage production of the ballet performed in the U.S. (Mikhail Baryshnikov's production is the most famous television version, although it too originated onstage.) The Balanchine Nutcracker uses the plot of the Alexandre Dumas, p re, version of E.T.A. Hoffmann's tale, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King (1816). Its premiere took place on February 2, 1954, at City Center, New York, with costumes by Karinska and sets by Horace Armistead.show more
