Tchaikovsky began work on his creation "The Nutcracker" in January 1892, and in March the work was finished, showing an unreal inspirational force that created a masterpiece, in which music and dance intertwine in a perfect perfection.

The famous Nutcracker ballet has captivated audiences of all ages right from its world premiere on the stage of the Mariinsky Imperial Theater, St. Petersburg, which took place on December 6, 1892. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky thus became the composer who delighted children's hearts everywhere on the eve of the holiday, offering them the most beautiful gift: a fairy tale with a lyrical tradition that continues to announce the winter holidays even today, with exaltation and on charming scores.

Due to the success it enjoyed, the famous ballet has been successfully translated over the years into art films, cartoons or ballet on ice, with the score of the Russian composer based on the fairy tale of the same name signed by Alexandre Dumas. The winter tale brings us to the fairy tale atmosphere where dance, emotion and symphony are complete in a dream waltz.
