Prelude: Herr Drosselmeyer’s Workshop

It is Christmas Eve and Drosselmeyer is eagerly working on the toys in his workshop. He hurries to go to the Christmas party of his relatives, the Stahlbaums. The Stahlbaum family is excitedly preparing for their Christmas party.


Now a holiday classic, The Nutcracker ballet was originally based on the 1816 book, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, written by E.T.A. Hoffman.
