Watch a Beer Bottle Orchestra Perform Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker

The sweet strains of tempura and beer bottles.

This two-minute video showcases a group of musicians, billed as the "Beer Bottle Orchestra," playing a section of "Waltz of the Flowers" from The Nutcracker entirely on beer bottles and kitchen equipment. The music in the video, which is produced by Kirin Beer, starts off slowly with cracking eggs providing the introduction. Gradually, other elements join the fray: chopping vegetables, tempura frying, and sifting flour. They form the rhythm section, and the beer bottles soon join in with Tchaikovsky's iconic melody.
