Tchaikovsky with Music (ES619) Nutcracker

In 1992 Herr Steinbach visited the U.S. for the Christmas holiday and saw many Tchaikovsky posters plastered all over billboards. He learned that it was the 100th anniversary of the famous ballet “The Nutcracker” which was first preformed in 1892.

The Steinbach workshops immediately went to work on making a Peter Tchaikovsky Nutcracker representing the famous composer from Russia (1840-1893). As the founder of the Great Russian ballet tradition, he holds the strings of the dancing figurines in his hand while tiny ballet-king dances to the tune of the music.

The brilliant artistry of this tiny figurine symbolizes the masterfully composed orchestral music and the world-renown of Peter Tchaikovsky.
