Performed in two acts, The Nutcracker is one of the last of Tchaikovsky’s full-length ballets. It is based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s tale of The Nutcracker and the Mouse Kingand was first performed at the Maryinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia on Dec. 18, 1892. The French choreographer Marius Petipa worked closely with composer Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky on the score. For the Dimensions Dance Center’s production, Morgan and Newton have designed choreography that strengthens the story line, highlights the artistry, and is edited to reach audiences of varying ages.
