Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker question.

My wife, Diane, had a question for you classical music history buffs: Which came first the score or the ballet choreogaphy? Does anyone know who did the original Choreography in Tchiakovsky's day?

Diane thanks Kal!

Kal, thanks for the great info. I was 'taken' with the Nutcracker ballet in the early 1950's when we first got television and now have an extensive Nutcracker collection we keep out all year.

Thanks again,
Diane Tavegia

Thanks RG!
Jim made me change my profile because I didn't put Atlanta and he was afraid y'all would think we didn't live together.
