I am so excited to see the opening night on Friday and am totally ready to be dazzled as Joburg Ballet brings to sparkling life one of the most popular and beloved classical ballets in the world, with an enchanting new production of The Nutcracker from 5 to 14 October at Joburg Theatre.

Tchaikovsky’s captivating music will be played live by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, with the exception of the performance on 9 October at 11h00, this ballet is set to be an unforgettable treat for children and adults alike.

It is certainly one of my favourite ballets, for as long as I can remember and this promises exquisite dancing, sumptuous sets and Tchaikovsky’s captivating music played live by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra. The Nutcracker is an unforgettable treat for children and adults alike.

Choreographed by Angela Malan, former senior principal dancer with Joburg Ballet, The Nutcracker will transport audiences to a fairy tale world, as Clara and the Nutcracker Prince dance through snowflakes, journey to the kingdom of sweets, encounter waltzing flowers and meet the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Expect stunning new sets and lighting by designer Wilhelm Disbergen will bring this magical world to life on stage, while conductor Eddie Clayton and the full Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra will conjure Tchaikovsky’s shimmering score. The JPO is generously sponsored for the season by The Michel Tesson Trust.

Tickets range from R 100 – R 238. More info and booking here…
