Wooden Ornaments > Steinbach Ornaments > Nutcracker Ballet
 
Steinbach Ornaments that depict the key characters from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet.

The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the story "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice" written 
by E.T.A. Hoffman.  Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from 
the original story, the basic plot remains the same; 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 the 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.
