In his last ballet, Tchaikovsky addresses the same theme that was embodied in Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty - overcoming evil spells by the power of love.

“The Nutcracker is the most perfect artistic phenomenon: a symphony about childhood. . As if the walls of a children's room are moving apart and the thought-dream of the heroine and hero breaks out into a fresh space - into the forest, nature, towards the winds, blizzards, further to the stars and into the pink sea of ​​hopes."

(B. Asafiev)

The composer finds vivid expressive means for depicting the two worlds juxtaposed in The Nutcracker: the world of a cozy burgher's life and the mysteriously enticing, bewitching or frightening and darkly mesmerizing fantasy world. With the onset of night, the mysterious world of miracles comes to life and everything around appears in an unusual light disturbing the imagination.
