Um... it's more of a self-affirmation with no bearing on reality... I figure if I say it with enough emphasis, I might actually believe it, until of course reality hits in December... :)

For me....and I'm sure for many folks....
the Nutcracker was a fabulous introduction into the world of ballet.
The story is easy to follow as Basheva suggested;theres kids...and a prince.....and the overall Christmas theme.

In step with 'Nutcracker' history
by TOM STRINI for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

No, Virginia, there is no authentic, original "Nutcracker."

Before anyone danced a step of it, the world's most-performed ballet already was twice removed from its source. Marius Petipa, the venerable artistic director of the Russian czar's Maryinsky Theater Ballet, based his scenario on Alexandre Dumas Sr.'s "L'Histoire d'un Casse Noisette," a free translation of E.T.A.. Hoffmann's "Nussknacker und Mausekönig" (1816).
