Based on Alexander Dumas' adaptation of E. T. A. Hoffman's story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, the ballet premiered in December of 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Tchaikovsky selected eight pieces from the ballet and created The Nutcracker Suite, which became an immediate success and to this day remains one of the most popular ballets, and contains some of the best-loved Christmas music. This suite of three selected short movements scored especially for beginners includes "March," "Dance of the Reed Flutes," and "Russian Dance (Trepak)." The movements can be performed individually or together. A superb classical transcription for teaching and performance to be programmed during the holidays or any time of the year. (3:45).
