The Nutcracker: Pieces of Childhood - Piece I, Act 2

Journeying to the far reaches of YouTube, I have returned to The Grimm Tea Party with clips from this most beloved performance of mine (see last post - link).

PNB's Nutcracker-Load In Time Lapse

An extra song.
A comment on the YouTube video says that the song is from “Tchaikovsky's opera "Queen of Spades,"” Of all the versions of The Nutcracker I have seen, only PNB includes this.

Clara and the Nutcracker
and The Nutcracker battles against the Army of the Mouse King

In The Christmas Tree
and The Waltz of the Snowfalkes

Variation II (Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy)

Chocolate (Spanish Dance), Coffee (Arabian Dance), Tea (Chinese Dance), and Trépak (Russian Dance)

Dance of the Reed Flutes and Polichinelle


Intrada, continued

Kindest personal regards,
Do not forget the reason for the season,
Miss Alice Grimm
