Classic Arts News   Indianapolis Group Attempts to Revive Ballet Internationale's Nutcracker
 
A newly formed non-profit group in Indianapolis is attempting to raise enough money to stage The Nutcracker with former Ballet Internationale dancers, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Ballet Internationale shut down suddenly on November 9 because of financial problem and canceled all of its upcoming performances, including The Nutcracker. The holiday ballet was scheduled to run December 13-23 at the Murat Theatre.

The new group, Nutcracker 2005, will seek to raise $250,000 for the production and to rent sets and costumes from Ballet Internationale. According to the Star, it will need to move quickly—companies in the United States and Russia have already made offers to Ballet Internationale's principal dancers.
