If you love the ballet and would love to WIN a set of two tickets to the opening night of Joburg Ballet’s Snow White – The Ballet valued at R 700 then you are in the right place!

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairytale of a girl whose beauty drives an evil queen to vengeance, Joburg Ballet’s artistic director Iain MacDonald has choreographed a lyrical ballet, with music by the great Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich, which has all the hallmarks audiences expect from the company: superb dancing, captivating theatre and enchanting settings.

“Snow White is a perfect fairytale to adapt into classical ballet, a story with romance, comedy and drama in equal measure,” said MacDonald. “It also offers wonderful opportunities to showcase the wealth of talent Joburg Ballet offers, in both classical and character roles.“I’m delighted to be using the richly melodic and evocative music of Shostakovich and to have discovered just how perfectly suited his work is for ballet. The sets are by Andrew Botha, a stage designer with an impressive gift for transporting audiences to magical new worlds.”

To stand a chance to win this set of tickets valued at R 700 to the opening night of Sleeping Beauty – The Ballet being held at The Teatro at Montecasino on the 30th of May at 20h00 you need to comment below and let me know why you deserve to win these tickets – and who you plan on taking with you!

Competition closes 22nd May 2019 and the winner will be contacted via email. Tickets are not transferrable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

I would Love to attend the Snow White balllet with my Aunt. Ive loved all thats, music, dance or art since I was a little girl. So wanted to attend dances classes after school, unfortunately it was just not possible, so I kept to artsy side of me. Seeing these ballets are just magical. Anyone would be lucky to attend.

Ashveer Kewalpershad May 16, 2019 at 10:45 am

I would love to go with my boyfriend. We’re always wanting to try new experiences and discover different art forms. I’ve been to Swan Lake on Ice before as a gift and have been desperately wanting to see more ballet ever since but haven’t been able to afford it.

Monique Jordaan May 16, 2019 at 6:21 pm

My dad and I have a great relationship, but our special thing to do together is go to the ballet. It’s strange that that has become our thing – I didn’t do ballet growing up, but it’s our way to bond. I would love to take him to Snow White as a treat (needed for all sorts of reasons). And honestly this show looks like it will be exactly that, a treat of epic proportions.

Cathy May 16, 2019 at 6:58 pm

Sabrina Crouch May 16, 2019 at 7:59 pm

I am a little broke and haven’t gotten my mum anything for mother’s day yet, she loves the theater so much and I would really love to spoil her like this! She definitely deserves this after taking in my sister and becoming a mommy granny to her grandson!

Kayla Retief May 16, 2019 at 9:00 pm

I would love to win these tickets to take my gran to see this ballet, she would love it, she has watched every single ballet that has played at monte but she recently got retrenched and has not been able to afford anything. So I would love to surprise her with this. I know it will make her dream come true.

Loreal May 16, 2019 at 9:46 pm

I would love to take my husband with me. We love going to the theatre and I love watching ballet. I haven’t had the opportunity to watch as much ballet as I’d like to and Snow White is such a special fairytale for me on a personal level. This would be a mu h appreciated and fabulous prize.

Sim May 17, 2019 at 12:39 am

Wow, where does one begin with explaining why they deserve the honor of tickets to the ballet. Such a luxury. There’s no right answer.
Well for me , ballet is close to my heart. Close to my mum’s too. I did ballet for 17 years before an iinjury and needing acl surgery. This caused me to never be able to dance at the same level again. Dance as a whole was near impossible. So Instead I’d often find myself watching the art I once was so deeply apart of. I’d take the very person that put me in my first ballet class at the age of 3, the one who came to every little recital and every big performance. My mum.

Mandy May 17, 2019 at 7:30 am

My partner just recently lost her sister and she loves theatrical performances and I’ve never taken her to one so this would be a nice way to hopefully bring a smile to her face.

Melanie May 17, 2019 at 8:15 am

Although I’m a balletomane of note, it would be difficult to squeeze my two dance-obsessed Pixies into 1 seat, so if I got lucky, I’d definitely send the two of them for a bit more kultcha. Got to educate young minds in the arts along with all the other subjects.

Samantha Pillay May 17, 2019 at 9:10 am

I would definately go with my hubby. I deserve to win because we haven’t been out on a date night in a year due to financial constraints and more importantly because we are absolutely the biggest theatre fans.

Cris Affat May 17, 2019 at 11:20 am

Would take my daughter as it will be the first time ever watching a ballet production.

Love ballet and only been once, so would love to go to one again!

What an absolutely fantastic prize! I would love to take my 7 year old daughter so that we can see our first ballet together. I know she would be blown away by the beautiful dancing and the stunning costumes. It would be a very memorable and bonding experience

    Heather Hook May 22, 2019 at 10:13 pm

    Congrats Taryn – I have sent you an email! HH

Laura Palmos May 18, 2019 at 9:45 am

Rain de Jager May 18, 2019 at 11:44 am

I used to do ballet and stopped because of time but have recently watched Men In Tutus and it ignited my love for the beautiful art! I want to take my best friend with me as she also is a ballet lover!

Joubert May 18, 2019 at 4:28 pm

Theatre excites me, and it is also a place where i draw inspiration from. My boyfriend has been in hospital from December 2018, and home bound through out this whole year. And this would be something special to him, just so he can see the world once again.

Lunéll Kruger May 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm

I would love to join in celebrating life and the art and grace of this delightful ballet. Do I deserve it? With my whole heart, yes!

Samantha Myburgh May 18, 2019 at 7:58 pm

Cohen Perumal May 19, 2019 at 2:53 pm

My princess is turning 13 soon and I would really love to take her to the ballet. I used to read the book to her every night so this would be such a magical experience.

Liane Pedro May 19, 2019 at 7:52 pm

Would definitely take my older sister Carmen. We did Ballet as children and have never had the opportunity to go to a Ballet together as adults. Ballet always takes me back to happier times!

Tiaan Wasserman May 19, 2019 at 9:07 pm

I would absolutely love to win this for my beautiful wife Marochelle she deserves to win this, we are such big ballet fans, and its almost her birthday she would go nuts if I could surprise her ❤ AMAZING ?

Themba May 19, 2019 at 10:44 pm

I want to take my ex, she went through a very traumatic experience recently, this will take her mind of over thinking

Chery Koekemoer May 20, 2019 at 5:40 am

I see all the Peter Torien productions at Montecasino, but my boyfriend is not interested in going with me. If I won these tickets, I would take him so that hopefully I could start him on the way to fostering a love for theatre.

TeeKay May 20, 2019 at 5:49 am

I would definitely love to go watch with my colleague. She’s a Ballet teacher and I’m a Tap teacher. We’ve worked very hard this first half with our amazing kids and this show would be an amazing treat for our mid-year break.

Boni.Dee May 20, 2019 at 11:03 am

I would like to take my boyfriend Steve with me. He has never seen any ballet production and I feel you do need to awaken that passion. You never know until you try it 🙂

Moira de Swardt May 20, 2019 at 11:07 am

I am no more deserving than anyone else, but no less either. ?.

I will take one of my school friends with me. We’ve been friends for nearly fifty years now. We attended ballet with the school. We’ve attended since then. Two pensioners with history of love being ballet.

And the dwarves are great! They’re not on their knees, shuffling.

#SnowWhiteBallet. #JoburgBallet

Estelle Whitby May 20, 2019 at 6:59 pm

I’d like to win these tickets because I’ve been obsessed with ballet since I was a child. Since I’m not a dancer, watching the ballet is the next best thing. I’d take my husband with me because he seldom gets the chance to indulge his artistic side.

Roy Shires May 20, 2019 at 7:41 pm

I need to de-stress and what better way than to attend the fabulous Johannesburg Ballet, dancing Snow White to the music of Dimitri Shostakovich, with my friend Bev

Larissa Raubenheimer May 21, 2019 at 12:53 pm

This would be so wonderfull to watch!! My sister loves a fairytail so this would be perfect and it would be her first time in a theater.
