This enchanting ballet first premiered December 17, 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia at the Maryinski Theater which is now the home of the world famous KIROV BALLET. It was adapted from a story written by German author, ERNEST (E.T.A.) HOFFMAN in the early 1800’s, named The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Russian composer PIOTR (PETER) ILLITCH TCHAIKOVSKY composed the unforgettable music.
