One of Peter Tchaikovsky’s most enduring legacies is his ballet “The Nutcracker”. It is a Christmas story in which young Marie Stahlbaum’s favorite toy, the Nutcracker, comes alive and, after defeating the evil Mouse King in battle, becomes a Prince and whisks her away to a magical kingdom populated by dolls. Sugar Plum Fairy is a character in Act II of this ballet. She temporarily rules the beautiful Country of Sweets, while its regular ruler – The Prince – is away in people’s land, being spelled into a wooden nut-cracker.
