December 24, home of the medical adviser Stalbaum. Everyone is preparing for Christmas, and the children, Fritz and Marie, are guessing what this time will be presented to them by an inventor and an artful godfather, senior adviser to the court, Drosselmeyer, who often repaired the clock in the house of Stalbaum. Marie dreamed about the garden and the lake with the swans, and Fritz said that he liked the presents of parents, which can be played (the godfather’s toys were usually kept away from the children so that they would not break), but the whole garden could not be done by the godfather. In the evening, the children were admitted to the beautiful Christmas tree, near and on which were presents: new dolls, dresses, hussars, etc. The Godfather made a wonderful castle, but the dolls dancing in it performed the same movements, and it was impossible to get inside the castle, therefore the miracle of technology quickly tired of the children - only the mother became interested in a complex mechanism. When all the gifts were taken apart, Marie saw the Nutcracker.The ugly doll looks very cute to the girl. Fritz quickly broke a pair of teeth with the Nutcracker, trying to crack hard nuts, and Marie began to take care of the toy. At night, the children removed the toys in a glass cabinet. Marie lingered at the closet, placing her ward with all comforts, and became a participant in the battle of the mouse seven-headed king and the army of dolls led by Nutcracker. The dolls surrendered under the onslaught of mice, and when the mouse king had already reached for the Nutcracker, Marie threw the shoe at her ... She woke up girl in bed with an elbow, cut into broken glass cabinet. No one believed her story about the night of the incident. Godfather brought repaired Nutcracker and told the tale of solid walnut: the king and queen of the beautiful princess was born Pirlipat, but the queen Myshilda revenge for relatives killed mousetraps court watchmaker Drosselmeyer (they ate the fat, intended for the royal sausage) turned beauty into a freak. Only the clicking of the nuts could soothe her now. Drosselmeyer, under the penalty of the death penalty, calculated the horoscope of the princess with the help of a court stargazer - the Krakatuk nut, split by the young men with a special method, will help her to restore her beauty.The king sent Drosselmeier and a stargazer in search of salvation; both the nut and the young man (the nephew of the watchmaker) were found with Brother Drosselmeyer in his hometown. Many princes broke their teeth about Krakatuk, and when the king promised to marry his daughter to savior, a nephew came forward. He split the nut and the princess, his siv, became beautiful, but the young man could not perform the whole ceremony, because Myshilda rushed under his feet ... The mouse died, but the guy turned into a Nutcracker. The king drove Drosselmayer, his nephew and astrologer. However, the latter predicted that the Nutcracker would be a prince and the deformity would disappear if he defeated the mouse king and a beautiful girl fell in love with him. A week later, Marie recovered and reproached Drosselmeyer for not helping the Nutcracker. He replied that only she could help, because he ruled a bright kingdom. Mouse king got into the habit of extorting Marie's sweetness in return for the safety of the Nutcracker. Parents were alarmed by the fact that mice were bred. When he demanded her books and dresses, she took the Nutcracker in her hands and sobbed - she was ready to give everything, but when nothing was left, the mouse king would want to tear her away.The Nutcracker came to life and promised to take care of everything if he got a saber — Fritz, who recently fired the colonel (and punished the hussar for cowardice during the battle), helped with this. At night, the Nutcracker came to Marie with a bloody sword, a candle and 7 golden crowns. After giving the trophies to the girl, he led her into his kingdom - the Land of Fairy Tales, which got through his father's fox fur coat. Helping the Nutcracker sisters around the house, offering to crush the caramel in a golden mortar, Marie suddenly woke up in her bed. Of course, none of the adults believed her story. About the crown, Drosselmeier said that it was his gift to Marie for her two years and refused to recognize the Nutcracker as her nephew (the toy stood in its place in the closet). Dad threatened to throw out all the dolls, and Marie did not dare to stammer about her story. But once, on the threshold of their house, Drosselmayer’s nephew appeared, who confessed to Marie in private that he had ceased to be the Nutcracker, and made an offer to share with him the crown and throne of Marzipan's castle. They say she is still the queen there.
