The Nutcracker remains one of the most popular holiday tales and performances thanks to the childhood wonder it inspiries. While The Nutcracker has been adapted into countless musicals, books, and films like Disney’s new The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, the story was originally written by German author E. T. A. Hoffman in 1816 as a short story titled The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. In 1892, the story was adapted into a two-act ballet featuring a score by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky containing some of the most iconic Christmas music in history.
