Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

As part of my personal holiday traditions, I have arranged for guitar a piece from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

This was taken from studying the score and reducing it, in a rather idiosyncratic way, to piano and, then, to guitar from this reduction. Unfortunately, I had all sorts of problems with the software involved and the video produced has the instrument changed to a piano sound, inexplicably. At any rate, the arrangement is correct except for some missing dynamic elements such as crescendo and decrescendo. Below is the printed music and the video link.
