Talmisays, “Masha flies on the wings of the Dove of Peace around the world seeking peace and harmony. She goes to France, Italy, Africa -- all around the world, and she finds peace and harmony through love.” In Act II Masha and her Nutcracker Prince arrive in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called the Land of Sweets) and celebrate the great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic.

About the Honeywell Center

The Honeywell Center in downtown Wabash, Indiana, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Center is operated by The Honeywell Foundation, Inc, which was established in 1941 by Wabash native, Mark C. Honeywell.  Building of the 45,000-square-foot (4,200 m2) Center began in 1940 but was delayed until 1952 due to the shortage of labor and materials needed for World War II. The Center’s gymnasium was informally opened November 19, 1947; however, the entire facility was completed in 1952 and included a roller rink and several meeting spaces. In 1994, a 75,000-square-foot addition expanded the Honeywell Center to include the 1,500-seat Ford Theater, Eugenia's Restaurant and an art gallery.
