A little celebration...
Who's seen Google's lovely artwork today :) Specially made to commemorate the 120th Anniversary of the Nutcracker Ballet. Cute!
One hundred and twenty years ago today, in St. Petersburg at the Mariinsky Theatre, Tchaikovsky's masterpiece premiered to very little success, if only he could know that centuries later his ballet would be known as one of, if not the most famous ballets of all time, performed by hundreds of companies and schools all over the world, The Nutcracker has become a staple in every Ballet Companies repertoire.
Happy 120th Anniversary Tchaikovsky.
