Tchaikovsky's 'The Nutcracker'
The magic of Tchaikovsky's ballet, 'The Nutcracker' comes to life in this theatrical pop-up book created by papercut artist Shobhna Patel.
This enchanting book features pop up paper cut 'paperscopes' of scenes from the ballet and is a charming book for readers young and old.
The classic story begins on Christmas Eve when a little girl named Clara and her brother Fritz are gathered around the Christmas tree to celebrate with family and friends. Their mysterious uncle, Drosselmeyer the toy maker, gives Clara a beautiful wooden nutcracker who magically comes to life when the clock strikes midnight.
So begins an enchanting adventure featuring all of Tchaikovsky's original characters: the soldier mice, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and of course a handsome prince. The Nutcracker is made all the more extraordinary by Patel's intricate laser-cut illustrations. The book features four pop-up paperscopes which spring to life when the reader presses each paperscope down with their hand to reveal the scene hidden within. The effect is one of a magical series of stage sets, recalling the story's origins as a ballet.
