Choreography by Vera Altunina | Music of P.I. Tchaikovsky
Ring in the holiday season with The Nutcracker. IBT's classical production features brilliant costumes and sets from Ukraine and principal dancers from Russia. Passed down through generations for more than a century, The Nutcracker ballet preserves the classical artistry first created by Tchaikovsky and Petipa in St. Petersburg in 1892. IBT performs The Nutcracker ballet in its traditional Russian style with extraordinarily beautiful costumes and tremendous pageantry, including exotic Arabian dancers, a fierce battle scene with lifelike cavalry, soldiers and mice, elegant corps de ballet snowflakes, and of course the beautiful ballerina, Clara, and her handsome prince.
