The Nutcracker, is a two-act ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The libretto is adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann's story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. It was given its première at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg on Sunday, 18 December 1892, on a double-bill with Tchaikovsky's opera, Iolanta.

Although the original production was not a success, the twenty-minute suite that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet was. However, the complete Nutcracker has enjoyed enormous popularity since the late 1960s and is now performed by countless ballet companies, primarily during the Christmas season, especially in the U.S. Tchaikovsky's score has become one of his most famous compositions, in particular the pieces featured in the suite. Among other things, the score is noted for its use of the celesta, an instrument that the composer had already employed in his much lesser known symphonic ballad The Voyevoda.

The Nutcracker by Russian State Ballet

The RUSSIAN STATE BALLET THEATRE is devoted to the traditions of Ballet but presented with a modern elegance. The sheer poetry of this philosophy, by its Directord Vlacheslave Gordeev, is evidenced in the treatment of the classic repertoire of THE RUSSIAN STATE BALLET. "Swan Lake", "Don Quixote", "Giselle", "The Nutcracker", "Cinderella", "Scherherazade", and "Sleeping Beauty" are the masterpieces offered for International Touring through 2012. In 1989 Vlacheslav Gordeev headed "The Ensemble of Classical Ballet" in Moscow and in turn it became the RUSSIAN STATE BALLET under the MOSCOW STATE THEATRE later that year. Gordeev, former Dancer, Choreographer and Artistic Director of the BOLSHOI THEATRE, achieved National acclaim for the RUSSIAN STATE BALLET within the Soviet Union and soon thereafter in Russia, Europe and throughout the World.
