Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Sweets" is an exciting way to introduce children to classical music and usually accompanies Prokofiev's "Peter & the Wolf. These two world-famous musical pieces are  performed often, but very rarely using puppets and using the unique black theatre technique, developed by Czech puppeteers in 1960s. This complex and stunning style of presentation allows complete freedom of movement for the puppets who move effortlessly, without visible means of support, because the puppeteers standing directly behind them, cannot be seen.
