    Several days later, Drosselmeyer arrives with the nutcracker, whose jaw has been fixed, and tells Marie the story of Princess Pirlipat and Madam Mouserinks, who is also known as the Queen of the Mice, which explains how nutcrackers came to be and why they look the way they do. Out of nowhere, large mice dressed in army uniforms, led by their Mouse King, begin to circle the room while the toys and Christmas tree come to life. Hand in hand, the two walk off into the forest. Then Drosselmeyer appears, but we're never sure if this is a dream or not. The Ventures' own instrumental rock cover of "Nut Rocker", known as "Nutty", is commonly connected to the NHL team, the Boston Bruinsfrom being used as the theme for the Bruins' telecast games for over two decades, from the late s.

    Dancing Delights Shortly thereafter, the dancing begins. Pin This post may contain affiliate links. The room seems to have grown and the china cabinet has become a castle, home to a life-sized version of her Nutcracker doll that comes to life. As the evening grows late, the guests depart and the Stahlbaum family retires for the evening. The newspapers reviled Tchaikovsky, and he did not live to see the piece succeed. This version had custom lyrics written for Waring's chorus by among others, Waring himself.

    It has retained its freshness because it appeals to the sense of wonder we all share. While looking at the nutcracker and thinking about all the wondrous things that happened, she can't keep silent anymore and swears to him that if he were ever really real she would never behave as Pirlipat did, and would love him whatever he looked like. The Stahlbaums are hosting their annual Christmas party, welcoming the arrival of their family and friends. They are the delight of the party, each taking a turn to dance. They read Pirlipat's horoscope and told the King that the only way to cure her was to have her eat the nut Crackatook Krakatukwhich must be cracked and handed to her by a man who had never been shaved nor worn boots since birth, and who must, without opening his eyes hand her the kernel and take seven steps backwards without stumbling. Everyone dances in her honour — beautiful Arabian Princesses, Russian Cossacks, French ballet dancers and even exotic flowers.

The Nutcracker book

Soon, a mysterious guest arrives. Credited to B. The girls receive beautiful china dolls and the boys receive bugles. The dolls in the toy cabinet come alive and begin to move, the nutcracker taking command and leading them into battle after putting Marie's ribbon on as a token.

The Nutcracker returns and suddenly turns into a Prince, who looks just like Drosselmeyer's nephew. The house is decorated with ornaments, wreaths, stockings, mistletoe, and, in the center of it all, a majestic Christmas tree.

This version had custom lyrics written for Waring's chorus by among others, Waring himself. The Gift of the Nutcracker The celebration is interrupted again when Drosselmeyer reveals to the The Nutcracker book that he has brought them gifts.

The grandfather clock begins to chime, and Marie believes she sees Drosselmeyer sitting on top of it, preventing it from striking. It has been recorded with Peter Ustinov reciting the verses, and the music is unchanged from the original. It is Christmas Eve. Dressed in dark clothing, he frightens Fritz, but not Clara, who knows that he is Godfather Drosselmeyer, the toymaker.

Fritz and Louise go up to bed, but Marie begs to be allowed to stay with the nutcracker a while longer, and she is allowed to do so. Synopsis Marie, Fritz, Drosselmeyer's nephew, and the Prince are played by actual pre-teenage children in this production, as are all the other children.

However, the astrologer predicted that the Nutcracker would become a prince and his ugliness would disappear if he won the Mouse King and a beautiful girl would fall in love with him. This collection contains a variety of versions making them great for classroom discussions.

Marie, seeing the nutcracker about to be taken prisoner, takes off her slipper and throws it at the Mouse King. The LP soundtrack recording was, for a time, the only stereo version of the Baryshnikov Nutcracker available, since the show was originally telecast only in mono, and it was not until recently that it began to be telecast with stereo sound.

When Drosselmeyer's nephew brings Marie the doll bed so that she can place her broken Nutcracker in it, it becomes obvious that Marie is deeply touched, and that she and the nephew will become good friends. He had been turned into a nutcracker by the evil Mouse King, and only by the King's death could the Nutcracker regain his human form.
