Program Notes

As performed in the fabulous Trans-Siberian Orchestra live concert, this is an updated arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Trepak from "The Nutcracker".

- Program Note by publisher


The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (op. 71). It was given its première at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg on Sunday, December 18, 1892.

Although the original production was not a success, the 20-minute suite that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet was. However, the complete Nutcracker has enjoyed enormous popularity since the late 1960s, and is now performed by countless ballet companies, primarily during the Christmas season, especially in North America.
