Music And Choreography
Tchaikovsky wrote the Nutcracker Suite music. He did not control the dance routines, choreography. When his Nutcracker debuted in 1892, it did not go over well. It was not the big success that it is today. The music was great. The dance, costumes, and scenery, not so much. He needed some help from others in that area. Eventually, all the other parts of the Nutcracker came together and you have what we see today around the Christmas Season. Sometimes, a good idea needs help to bring out the best of it. A choreographer cannot do much with bad music. So the next time you work on an idea that you think is good, don't give up just because it does not go over well. It may need some help. Don't we all at one time or another? We are all God's good idea, but we need help to bring out our best.
