Something wrong with the clip?

Quote

[longer introduction to "The Nutcracker Suite"] Deems Taylor: You know, it's funny how... wrong an artist can be about his own work. The one composition of Tchaikovsky's that he really detested was his "Nutcracker Suite", which is probably the most popular thing he ever wrote. It's a series of dances taken out of a full-length ballet called "The Nutcracker" that he once composed for the St. Petersburg Opera House. It wasn't much of a success and nobody performs it nowadays, but I'm pretty sure you'll recognize the music of the suite when you hear it. Incidentally... uh, you won't see any nutcracker on the screen; there's nothing left of him but the title.

And so Walt Disney and his fellow artists have taken him at his word
00:00:05.088 --> 00:00:07.923
Instead of presenting the ballet in its original form
00:00:08.997 --> 00:00:12.803
as a simple series of tribal dances they have visualized it as a pageant
00:00:12.887 --> 00:00:16.849
as the story of the growth of life on Earth
00:00:16.933 --> 00:00:19.268
And that story as you're going to see it
00:00:19.352 --> 00:00:21.077
isn't the product of anybody's imagination
00:00:21.855 --> 00:00:25.941
It's a coldly accurate reproduction ofwhat science thinks went on
00:00:26.999 --> 00:00:29.319
during the first few billion years of this planet's existence
00:00:29.404 --> 00:00:33.024
Science not art wrote the scenario of this picture
