The Nutcracker is (in its original form) a two-act ballet choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Tchaikovsky. Despite failing to gain box office success during its original run in 1892, through the years it has become one of the most popular ballets in the world, particularly in the US during Christmas season. Tchaikovsky's score has also become one of his most famous compositions, most notable for the celesta-backed "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" in Act II.
