The Nutcracker was originally written by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in the late 1800s adapted from E. T. A. Hoffman’s The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The first performance was staged by Merius Petipa in December 1892. Originally the story was much longer than Tchaikovsky’s play with a much more in depth plot but Tchaikovsky simplified it for the viewers. Since the 1960s The Nutcracker has stolen the hearts of many in the Western countries and become a much anticipated part of the Christmas season.
