This is a full score to Yoon Jae Lee’s unabridged arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet, The Nutcracker. Scored for a mixed chamber ensemble of 13 (or 14) instruments with top quality engraving, this arrangement captures all of the essence of the original orchestration. It is also one of the only known reductions of the entire ballet that uses single strings, unlike the myriad of other reduced orchestrations available. Additional string players may be added at the discretion of the performers. Ideally suited for small theaters and ballet companies, this arrangement allows for staged performances of this masterpiece with live music which would otherwise not be possible. To allow for greater flexibility and practical use of instrumentation, the harp part is cross-cued into the piano and part. The Suite and the Waltz of the Flowers are also available for the same instrumentation. Performance material available for hire; please contact for all inquiries.
