Seeing the Nutcracker? Go prepared!

IMG_3352

Is a performance of Tchaikovsky’s ballet “The Nutcracker” on your calendar this December? If so, you can make the experience even more meaningful for you kids with a little advanced planning. Check out Tchaikovsky Discovers America by Classical Kids.

Tchaikovsky Discovers America tells the fictional story of real-life composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky running away from reporters with help from two children. The trio takes the train to Niagra Falls. Along the way, they learn about Tchaikovsky’s greatest musical accomplishments, as well as life in Russia.

This production is from Classical Kids, the same company that created Beethoven Lives Upstairs and Mr. Bach Comes To Call. Most of their CDs are available at your local library. But my family owns the entire Classical Kids collection because of  Carschooling. I consider it money well spent!
