Travel and dance with the Nutcracker is the second part of a collection of two independent applications dedicated to the Nutcracker. The first application "The real story of the Nutcracker" tells of the extraordinary fate of a young man called the Nutcracker, who was transformed into a pitiful wooden man by the Mouse King thirsting for revenge.
The second part "Travel and dance with the Nutcracker" immerses us in the dream of a feverish young girl falling in and out of consciousness, who gradually falls in love with her toy, the Nutcracker. As she sleeps, she roams through wondrous worlds and her growing love imbues an increasingly human form on her toy. Just like the first volume of the tale, this app offers an interactive journey.
Sonic Solveig has created a musical app featuring the interactive tale of the Nutcracker, as well as musical games, music to the Nutcracker ballet and interesting facts about this great literary and musical classic.
