Title Origin Official

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy is a famous instrumental from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's ballet, The Nutcracker.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy is used as the background music of the Multimedia Player demo that comes with the software. Since all the other new songs that came with the Sound Blaster Pro came from the MusiClips library, it is assumed that this song also came from the library and was converted to a CMF file, though this has not been verified.

The song is named FAIRY.CMF and is located in the MMPLAY folder.
