Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker," the story of a young girl's journey to a magical land on Christmas Eve, is perhaps not only the composer's most famous work but also one of the most famous ballets of all time. "The Nutcracker" performed during the Christmas season due to its content, and many families make it an annual tradition to attend a performance. The composer made a selection of eight of the more popular pieces before the ballet’s December 1892 premiere, forming what is currently known as the Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a, as is heard in Moscow Ballet productions. The suite became instantly accessible; however, the complete ballet did not achieve its great popularity as a Christmas performance event until almost 100 years later.
