Add this special figure to your Lori Mitchell Nutcracker Suite collection! In Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker", Herr or Uncle Drosselmeyer introduces a life size Harlequin Doll to the party guests in Act I of the ballet. He dances for the guests, sometimes with another doll named Columbine. In other productions of the ballet the Harlequin figure comes alive at midnight along with other characters, such as the Nutcracker and Toy Soldiers after the party has ended and the guests have left. This Harlequin has a Victorian jester like appearance, and is posed in a ballet plie stance.
