Krakatuk, the magic hazelnut, a young man wearing boots, a king and queen as cruel as they are loving, a mouse people decimated by Pirlipate's royal family, and the terrible revenge of the Mouse King. This is the first tableau of the tale that reveals how the Nutcracker became a nutcracker.

"The Nutcracker myth becomes a dreamy ballad, to be touched with the fingertips. With Sonic Solveig, music cannot be learned, it can be felt." (Télérama)

"Marie Claire Enfants loves classical music and also beautiful and intelligent apps. After the brilliant variation on Peer Gynt, let young music lovers (or not, for that matter) discover The Nutcracker. A whole instrumentarium awaits you around the fairy tale of The Nutcracker. And the graphics are superb." (Marie Claire Enfants)

"Listen carefully and you will hear the crystalline notes of Tchaikovsky's celesta, as you immerse yourself in this wonderful world with extraordinary graphics. The vocabulary is rich and you enrich your knowledge of the symphony orchestra and its components at the end, by playing. Comprehensive and intriguing, beautiful and amazing." (Milk)

"A visual and musical journey of rare sweetness. Don't be in a hurry, take the time to discover this application... Discover The Nutcracker opens with Marie's dream and takes us to a kingdom where princesses in danger are saved by the magical Krakatuk nut. A great application." (La Souris Grise)
