" The Nutcracker"

Hi guys!. The most famous ballet that is performed at Christmas is the Nutcracker. This ballet is very popular during the Xmas season. It´s the story of Clara and the Nutcraked Prince.Click on the book to read the full story. I want to share this classic Xmas ballet with you.
* Another version of the story for kids.
I welcome Christmas with the famous song from this ballet " Fairy Dace of Sugar Plum". Have a look at Disney´s interpretation of this song.
See the candy fairies, sugar-plums, jelly-beans, chocolate bars,
Dance the minuet,
With the candied cherries, lolly-pops, peppermints, candy-canes,
As they pirouette,
See the FAIRY PRINCESS gracefully, beautifully,
Swaying to the tune..

This piece of ballet masterpiece by Russian composer Tchaikovsky is full of magic. Watch a video with a real ballet interpretation of this song.
