Joburg Ballet brings Classic Ballet to the Montecasino Teatro.
After a triumphant début season at The Teatro, Montecasino in December, Joburg Ballet returns to the popular venue with its sparkling production of Snow White – The Ballet from Thursday 30 May to Sunday 2 June, for five performances only.
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.
The casting for Snow White – The Ballet will feature Nicole Ferreira-Dill and Shana Dewey alternating in the title role, and Leusson Muniz and Ruan Galdino alternating as the Prince. Ferreira-Dill and Muniz dance on Thursday 30 May at 20:00, Saturday 1 June at 14:00, and Sunday 2 June at 15:00; Dewey and Galdino dance on Friday 31 May at 20:00 and Saturday 1 June at 20:00.
On Saturday 18 May from 10:00 to 13:00 at the Joburg Ballet studios at Joburg Theatre, the ballet company offers a glimpse into its working life as the dancers prepare for Snow White – The Ballet. The public has the chance to watch a ballet class, meet the creative team and see the company rehearse extracts from the ballet. Tickets are R120 and include refreshments. Booking is via Edgar Moagi on 011-877 6898 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
