Our School - Nutcracker Ballet is named after the inspiration from one of the most
popular ballet performances, primarily performed around the Christmas time.
The Nutcracker Story
The Nutcracker Ballet is a fairy tale-ballet based on the story "The Nutcracker and the King of
Mice" written by E.T.A. Hoffman.
The story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against
a Mouse King with seven heads.
When Marius Petipa had t he idea to choreograph the story into a ballet, it was actually based
on a revision by Alexander Dumas, a well known French author. His version reflects more of
what we have come to love as the Nutcracker Ballet. Alexandre Dumas adaptation of the story
was set to music by Tchaikovsky in 1891
