Several costumes from the Festival Ballet Providence's production of The Nutcracker, which were stolen in November, have been returned, according to the New York Times.

Fifty-seven items were stolen from a Pawtucket, RI, warehouse earlier this year. An attorney, representing the thief, returned several of the costumes — including the Sugar Plum Fairy's tutu and the Nutcracker’s mask — December 20.

Misha Djuric, who is the artistic director for the ballet company, is currently assessing the condition of the costumes that were returned. The Times reports that one of the Nutcracker's masks suffered damage.

The Nutcracker was performed the weekend of December 16 at the Rhode Island venue utilizing borrowed costumes and props from ballet companies around the country. Djuric expressed hope that the remaining costumes will be returned.
