Summary
Maguire takes us to the Black Forest of Bavaria and Munich of the Brothers Grimm and E.T.A. Hoffman. Hiddensee recreates the backstory of The Nutcracker, reimaging how this entrancing creature came to be carved and how it magically guided an ailing little girl named Klara through a dreamy paradise on a snowy Christmas Eve. It also brings to life the mysterious godfather Drosselmeier, the ominous, canny, one-eyed toymaker made immortal by Petipa and Tchaikovsky's ballet, who presents the once and future Nutcracker to Klara, his goddaughter
