The Russian ballet favourite, The Nutcracker, will make its way to Tasmania in April for a truly wonderful evening of passion, humour and imagination.
The Moscow Ballet La Classique will capture the minds of Tasmanian audiences with its exquisite production of the much-loved Nutcracker story.
The ballet company was founded over 20 years ago by its current director Elik Melikov, and will bring the classic story to life with "artistic ballet skill, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets" in the two act performance.
The Nutcracker is a festive affair for the whole family, as dancers twirl to tunes such as Dance of The Sugarplum Fairy and The Waltz of The Flowers from the renowned Tchaikovsky score.
Devonport will be treated to the first of the Tasmanian shows on Saturday April 20 at the Derwent Entertainment Centre.
Tickets for children (aged under 14) are $65, adults $85, concession and groups of people numbering more than six are $75.
The Nutcracker will then bring some magic to Launceston's Princess Theatre on Sunday April 21.
Reserve A tickets are $70 for children (aged 13 and under), $90 for adults and $80 for concession and groups of six people or more.
Reserve B tickets are $60 for children (aged 13 and under), $80 for adults and $70 for concession and groups of six people plus.
