Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Santa Barbara's background
Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1892 to limited fanfare. With a storyline inspired by The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and a score influenced by the Romantic Period, the now-beloved Tchaikovsky-written ballet wouldn't take off in popularity or acclaim for a few more decades. By the 1940s, the two-act ballet had made its San Francisco debut and became increasingly popular across North America, while it also picked up steam in Europe. The most famous songs from the ballet, including "Waltz of the Flowers," are often referenced in pop culture around the world. The Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker Santa Barbara tour stop is a lovely tribute to the iconic story.
