Though Hoffmann’s “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” was the inspiration for Tchaikovsky’s ballet, the version of the story that audiences know is an adaptation of Hoffmann’s tale written by Alexandre Dumas. And something that didn’t make it from Hoffmann’s page to the ballet stage is the backstory of the Nutcracker himself. “One of the motivating factors in me thinking through the story is that people had always asked me ‘Why does the Nutcracker turn into a prince?’ Gabay says.

But it might be asking too much for an athlete who is 22. Nagasu began learning the axel at 23 to ensure she would reach the 2018 Olympics. The two-time Olympian recently announced that she had pushed her body past its “own boundaries” and had undergone surgery in September.

Brittany Woodrough came to honor her close friend, 19-year-old Jason Benjamin Josaphat. “I just pray for his family and I can’t believe this happened,” she said. “Seeing President Obama here makes it real.”. Orlando’s calls for solidarity stood in contrast to the sharp-edged political debate in Washington and the presidential campaign trail that continued during Obama’s visit. Arizona Sen. John McCain, a Republican and frequent Obama critic, accused the president of being “directly responsible” for the shooting because, he said, Obama had allowed the growth of the Islamic State group on his watch. McCain quickly walked back those comments with a written statement saying he had misspoken and was referring to Obama’s “national security decisions, not the president himself.”.
