Tune of the Day: Arabian Dance
from “The Nutcracker Suite” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Here is another characteristic dance tune from Tchaikovsky's well-known ballet The Nutcracker. Like the “Chinese Dance” and the “Russian Dance”, this tune also appeared in the 1940 Disney film Fantasia, where the dance is gracefully performed by a school of underwater goldfish.
