Follow Classic FM's guide to Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, a festive favourite that remains his most endearing and best-loved ballet
The Mouse King falls to the floor and his mouse army carry his limp body off the stage. The Nutcracker takes the crown from the Mouse King’s head and places it on Clara who is then transformed into a beautiful princess. The Nutcracker is also magically turned into a handsome prince and whisks Clara off to the Land of Snow where they dance in a flurry of snowflakes.
