Song HistoryEdit

"Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" was composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Russian: Пётр Ильи́ч Чайко́вский) as part of The Nutcracker (ru: Щелкунчик, Балет-феерия) as the soundtrack for a two act ballet originally choreographed by Marius Ivanovich Petipa (ru: Мариус Иванович Петипа) and Lev Ivanovich Ivanov (ru: Лев Ива́нович Ива́нов). The ballet premièred at Mariinsky Theatre (ru: Мариинский театр) in St. Petersburg, Russia on Sunday, December 18, 1892[1].

The libretto of The Nutcracker ballet is adapted from Alexandre Dumas's The Nutcracker (French: Histoire d'un casse-noisette, 1844), which is an adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann's original story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King (German: Nussknacker und Mausekönig, 1816)[2].
