Product Details


A staple of North American ballet companies' Christmas season since the 1960s, the original production of The Nutcracker (fairy ballet) in 1892 was not a success, though the suite that Tchaikovsky extracted form the ballet was at the time. This edition for reduced orchestration has been arranged by William McDermott. The score that accompanies these parts is not for the reduced orchestration, but was created for the medium orchestration edition also completed by William McDermott. While it does not match perfectly, it is the score most appropriate for the reduced orchestration.
