Cinderella – the perfect ballet for Spring
A dazzling night, a glittering ball, something wonderful is sure to happen when the ultimate fairytale – Joburg Ballet’s production of Cinderella – returns to Joburg Theatre for just ten performances from Friday, 30 September to Sunday, 9 October.
We’re giving away a set of four tickets, valued at R1 560 to the first matinee performance at 15:00 on Saturday 1 October. To enter, simply fill in the form below. Entries close 17 September. This competition is open to Gauteng residents only.
Choreographed by Joburg Ballet’s artistic director Iain MacDonald and given its world premiere in 2013, Cinderella waltzes across the stage, with Johann Strauss’s champagne-infused melodies providing the perfect musical setting for this ultimate rags-to-riches tale. Andrew Botha’s glittering designs frame the action while the full company will set the stage alight in a family-friendly production full of charm and magic.
“Cinderella has always been one of the company’s most popular ballets,” said MacDonald. “Strauss composed some of the most enchanting, best loved and memorable classical music ever written and Cinderella, his only ballet score, is no exception. In October we’ll be moving into summer and Christmas will be just around the corner, making Cinderella the perfect ballet for the run up to the holiday season.”
