Tchaikovsky's ' Casse Noisette ' (Nutcracker) Suite contains some of the daintiest ballet music ever written, The whole work is, of course, much longer than the suite, which contains only some of the best numbers, and lasts for a considerable time when presented on the stage. The story of the ballet is taken from
E. T. A. Hoffmann's fantastic fairy-tale, ' Nutcracker and Mouse-King'this Hoffmann being the Hoffmann of Offenbach's opera-and is of a type that seems very much to appeal to Russian artists and audiences. The complete ballet was first produced in St. Petersburg in 1892, and the Suite was introduced to England by Sir Henry Wood at a Promenade Concert in 1896.

This evening Alistair Cooke is to give the third of his talks, which are proving very popular. He knows how to be lively, spontaneous, and amusing and still do his job as a critic.
The Cinema is as well known to him as the Theatre, and he has been studying and lecturing on both in America for the last two years. This summer he has been doing practical work for Charlie Chaplin in his Holly-wood studios, and before leaving he discussed with the great comedian the present series of talks.
Alistair Cooke is one hundred per cent. in earnest. He believes the cinema is as excellent and necessary and apt for our century as Elizabethan tragedy was for the sixteenth.
