Clara becomes Marie, The Mouse King becomes a rat, and the Shadyside section of Pittsburgh becomes the setting for a modern interpretation of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet. Intended as a resource guide for a 2012 performance, the background information on the original ballet, lesson prompts, and musical activities can be used with any performance, in any classroom, or for family discussion.
- Although designed to specifically to prepare theater goers for a live, modernized performance by Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, many of the suggested activities could be used with any version of the ballet
Of particular value are the activities that include a mapping exercise, a haiku assignment and music worksheets
- No video of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's December, 2012 performance is available
