One of the most sublime of all romantic ballets, Giselle, returns to the stage of Joburg Theatre when Joburg Ballet presents a season of ten performances of the beloved classic from Friday 4 to Sunday 13 October in association with the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

A heartrending story of a love so powerful it reaches from beyond the grave, the ballet’s exquisite dancing lays bare a tale of passion, betrayal and forgiveness with one of the greatest of all ballerina roles at its centre.

I am delighted to have this incredible hamper to giveaway to one lucky reader, valued at R 2 600…

4 tickets to attend the opening evening

2 signed programs

1 signed pointe shoe to keep as a memento

Giselle opens at Joburg Theatre on Friday 4 October for ten performances, ending on Sunday 13 October!

Comment below and let me know where Giselle is being held and why YOU deserve to win! Competition closes 26th September and the winner will be contacted via email. The prize is not transferrable and cannot be redeemed for cash.

Happening at the Joburg Theatre. We have never been to a ballet. Always wanted to experience this. The way they just swerve is always so captivating. This will be a serious amazing experience to see such a fantastic production.

I’d love to win this so that I can give it to my daughter. It’s her birthday on 18 September and I’d love to spoil her with this. She would love to take my grandchildren who both do ballet and love it!
We do regularly go to the Joburg Theatre, where Giselle is being performed, ( in fact we were at the People’s theatre there on Sunday), so we do support the arts and it would be great to win this very special package

Joburg Theatre

Ballet, modern, tap, hip hop, contemporary, ballroom, Latin American. I grew up participating in it all…I believe the discipline of dance is an incredible force for good, and it certainly helped shaped me. This prize, particularly the momento, dropped my jaw and made me feel as excited as 14 year old ballet dancer me would have been.

Benedict Winkler Sep 13, 2019 at 7:03 pm
