The play The Nutcracker is based on a classic story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by the Prussian author E.T.A. Hoffman. Godfather Drosselmeyer tells the girl Marie a fairy tale. Long ago, the evil Queen Misilda invoked a curse on the little princess. To free her from the curse, the Nutcracker became what we know him to be: a wooden freak who can do nothing but rub the nuts. The little girl Marie can't understand why the royal family just forgot about the Nutcracker and didn't help him. She wonders if she might really have something in common with the fairytale princess.
