Deems Taylor introduced the various compositions that comprise this animated interpretation of works of classical music. Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra play Bach's Toccata in D minor to the visual accompaniment to non-narrative imagery. Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker suite is illustrated by images of fairies managing the natural scene, plants and animals. Dukas' Sorcerer's apprentice shows Micky Mouse with out of control magic. Stravinsky's Rites of spring shows the creation of the world through the end of the dinosaurs. Beethoven's Pastoral symphony is illustrated by mythological Greek beings preparing a bacchanalia. Ponchielli's Dance of the hours features cartoon animals dancing the ballet. Moussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain features evils spirits and demons in a dark night of celebration. At dawn shadowy figures bearing lighted candles illustrate Schubert's Ave Maria.
