For over a hundred years, countless versions of The Nutcracker have been put on stage in the West. Despite the cultural differences, they all share great similarities. In February 2001, the National Ballet of China premiered its own version of The Nutcracker, which experimented a fusion of Chinese culture and Western classical ballet music, about a story of a Chinese family celebrating the Lunar New Year.

Accompanied by Tchaikovsky's music piece, the ballerinas present a variety of Chinese folk-customs and charming cultural elements in the performance. It showcases another bold exploration and reflection on the cultural fusion between the East and the West.

百余年来,西方国家上演过无数版本的《胡桃夹子》,但由于欧美国家文化背景差异不大,各个版本也大同小异。2001年2月,中央芭蕾舞团首次创作中国版芭蕾舞剧《胡桃夹子》,尝试将中国文化元素融入到西方古典芭蕾音乐中,讲述了一个中国家庭欢度春节的故事,别具一格。在柴可夫斯基音乐的陪衬下,展开一幅丰富多彩的中国民俗风情长卷,表达了中国芭蕾舞艺术家对东西文化交融的一种思考和探索。
