Tchaikovsky - Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

Sheet music for flute

Info: Piece from "The Nutcracker", one of the most popular ballet ever created. The "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" is a dance for a ballerina. This pas de deux is from Act 2 and is danced by the principal female dancer. Choreographer Marius Petipa wanted the Sugar Plum Fairy's music to sound like "drops of water shooting from a fountain". Tchaikovsky found the ideal instrument to do this job in Paris in 1891. It was then that he came across the recently invented celesta. This instrument look like a piano but sound like bells.
