The Nutcracker was first released back in 1892 as a two-act ballet. The first performance of The Nutcracker was not deemed a success. The first complete performance outside Russia took place in England in 1934. The New York City Ballet gave its first annual performance of the reworked staging of The Nutcracker in 1954.

The ballet is set on Christmas Eve, where family and friends have gathered in the parlor to decorate the beautiful Christmas tree in preparation for the party. Once the tree is finished, the children are sent for. They stand in awe of the tree sparkling with candles and decorations."
