IBT will celebrate it's 18th year in partnership with The Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, IN. We will also be joined by
the Plum Grove Strings. See The Nutcracker come to life, a cherished tale told through music, dance and spectacular costumes. The Nutcracker Ballet is based on the book called
The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E. T. A. Hoffman. In 1891, the legendary choreographer Markus Petpia commissioned Thalkovskey to write the music for the
Nutcracker Ballet. In 1892, the first showing of The Nutcracker took place at the Marlinsky Theatre of Russia, home of the Kirov Ballet. The Nutcracker made its way to America
by 1940, performed by Ballet Russe. Enjoy!
