About This Song
The Nutcracker is based on the book “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” by E.T.A. Hoffman. Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) wrote the music for the ballet during the early 1890’s, near the end of his life. “The Chinese Dance” (Danse Chinoise) is featured in Act II of the ballet along with the Spanish Dance, Arabian Dance, Waltz of the Flowers, and others. The 1892 premiere of The Nutcracker failed with both the public and critics. Unfortunately, Tchaikovsky never knew what a huge success the ballet became, as he died less than a year later. Tchaikovsky was one of the greatest Russian composers of all time. He wrote the music for three of the most famous ballets: “Swan Lake,” “The Sleeping Beauty” and “The Nutcracker”.
