* The story of the "Nutcracker and Mouse King" was penned by writer, painter, and composer E.T.W. Hoffmann. He was a great imaginist who often wrote of inanimate objects brought to life. Many compare Hoffmann to the Grimm brothers as his tales are often disturbing and dark. * The Imperial Russian ballet choreographer envisioned a ballet of the Nutcracker story yet chose Marius Petipa to write a libretto based on the light adaptation of the story written by Alexandre Dumas (the first). * When the full Nutcracker ballet was first performed in December of 1892 it was a bit of a failure. Tchaikovsky, the illustrious Russian composer, described his own composition as "infinitely worse than Sleeping Beauty". He did not live to see the success of his ballet. Tchaikovsky created a magical musical atmosphere by utilizing the Celesta in his composition. * The Celesta is a lesser known keyboard/percussion instrument with an almost heavenly, celestial sound. It is particularly showcased during the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
