This is set to be a season highlight and I cannot wait! Men in Tutu’s is a clever, affectionate parody of the ballet canon, both classical and contemporary via the dancers’ hilarious female personae (all of the cast are male BTW) – never undermines either the challenges of performing the complex choreography or the exceptional results, which make the show so thrilling to watch.

“Men In Tutus” features dancers from the USA, Spain, Argentina, Mexico, the Philippines, Australian, Colombia, the Isle of Wight and Japan, underlining the global appeal of ballet, dance and comedy. This ties in wonderfully with the objectives of Ballet Eloelle, which include: cultivating new audiences for dance through comedy; performing for audiences who may not have access to ballet, and to preserve the integrity and standards of excellence in the ballets they perform so as to educate audiences about the art form.

Be dazzled by dancing, delighted by drollness and diverted by divas in drag, and I am excited to have THREE double sets of tickets valued at R 800 per set to attend the opening night of Men In Tutu’s in Jozi to give away for Friday 12th April at 20h00 – Teatro at Montecasino is the venue, of course.

Make sure to comment below and let me know where the ballet is being staged, and why you should win of course! Competition closes Monday 8th April and the three winners will be contacted via email.

T&C’s apply and tickets are not transferrable and cannot be redeemed for cash.
