* The original production of The Nutcracker was created in 1892, with a libretto by Marius Petipa and choreography by Lev Ivanov, was performed at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. Vasily Vainonen’s version of The Nutcracker, which retained Ivanov’s Grand Pas de Deux, premiered at the same theatre in 1934.
