Origin[edit | edit source]

Antonietta Dell'Era[edit | edit source]

Antonietta Dell'Era (10 February 1860—?) was an Italian prima ballerina best known for originating the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy in Tchaikovsky's ballet, The Nutcracker (1892). The St. Petersberg premiere sold out. She received five curtain calls and good reviews. Modest Tchaikovsky described her as "pudgy and unattractive". Dell'Era had a successful career at the Berlin Opera. In 1886 she moved to St. Petersberg along with the "Italian Invasion" - an influx of talented Italian dancers to Russia that included Pierina Legnani, Enrico Cecchetti, and Virginia Zucchi.

Dell'Era was born in Milan, but it is not known how or where she died - despite her ballet fame, the rest of her life remains a mystery...

Effects[edit | edit source]

Wearing these slippers (which will adjust to fit any foot snugly), gives the user beautiful dancing skill in ballet while summoning a light snowfall in the atmosphere to drift over the dancer. However, the snow doesn't stop once the dance is finished, eventually burying the dancer in snow - once this occurs, he or she is completely forgotten by others or even disappears.
