There are many reasons why Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker makes such a compelling entertainment. There’s the Christmas element, of course, a Christmas Eve party followed by a scene in a veritable winter wonderland. Then there’s the color and the exoticism – dances from supposedly distant lands and flights of imagination among falling snowflakes. Variety, too, plays its part, with social party dances alternating with mythic figures out of a land of dreams. All these add up to making Nutcracker an unfailing attraction worldwide.
