Nutcracker Nation: How an Old World Ballet Became a Christmas Tradition in the New World
Jennifer Fisher (au)
This entertaining book offers new insights into North America’s love affair with “The Nutcracker,” the ballet set to the music of Russian composer Tchaikovsky. The book traces the ballet’s history, describes its many variegated productions, & explains its allure as a way for Americans to tell a story about their communal values & themselves. One of the first focused examinations of why this particular Russian ballet has enjoyed such success in America, it mines the myriad ways that a single art-work can penetrate everyday life & reflect a nation’s values. “A book for dance outsiders & insiders, for all grownups who have lived the “Nutcracker” experience & wondered about its sometimes crazy mix of history, kids, & pure stage magic.” Illus.
