Ballet, as we know it today, began during the Renaissance around the year 1500 in Italy. In fact, the terms "ballet" and "ball" as in masked ball, come from the Italian ballare, to dance. When Catherine de Medici of Italy married the French King Henry II, she introduced early dance styles into court life in France.
Ballet originated in sixteenth and seventeenth century French courts.

"Ballet originated in France." I'm not a big fan of disputes, but I beg to differ. Ballet was originally invented in Italy as a form of ballroom dancing of its time. It was later imported in France for royal entertainment.
The Nutcracker Ballet was adapted from E. T. A. Hoffman's story called The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. Tchaikovsky adapted the story for the stage and it was premiered in 1892.
