What is a celesta?  French for "heavenly," the celesta is a unique twinkling piano-like instrument heard in the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. The composer used the newly-invented celesta (after smuggling it into Russia from Paris!) to make the Sugar Plum music sound like the "sprays of a fountain" as requested by the choreographer, Marius Petipa. This charming instrument was also used in "Hedwig's Theme" from the Harry Potter movies as well as the opening music from the classic television series, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood."
