The Sugar Plum Fairy is a character in the ballet The Nutcracker. This ballet was first presented in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1892. The Sugar Plum Fairy only dances in Act 2 of the ballet. She is the ruler of the Land of Sweets. She welcomes the Nutcracker Prince and his love Clara to her land and orders the festivities.
Tchaikovsky used the celesta to sound like "drops of water shooting from a fountain". The instrument is forever identified with the Sugar Plum Fairy. The "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" is one of the ballet's best known musical numbers.
