About The Nutcracker - Special Simon Edition

The Special Simon Edition of The Nutcracker is a one-hour adaptation that includes music from every scene in Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet, unlike The Nutcracker Suite, ​which includes only an abbreviated overture and several of the dances from Act II. This instrumental version of The Nutcracker is a spirited romp that will leave none of your favorite moments behind.
Stephen Simon was uniquely qualified to create this edition, having created well-known performance editions of Handel’s operas and oratorios that led the Handel revival in America.
