The Moscow Ballet company is featuring nearly 40 ballerinas and danseurs, along with its life-sized Matroshka Dolls, on their 25th Anniversary Tour of North America this year.

“Adults and children enjoy the special effects of the flapping winged owl on the Grandfather clock, the growing 50 ft tall Christmas Tree, the Dove of Peace with a 20ft wingspan, and of course, the leaps, spins, and extraordinary moves of the company all performed to Tchaikovsky’s complete and incomparable score,” organizers said.

Tickets start at $28 and can be purchased here or by calling Ticketmaster 800-745-3000.
