The Nutcracker

A sparkling treat for the whole family with Joburg Ballet.

JNicole Ferreira Dill and Leusson Munizoburg 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. With 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.

Beautiful 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.

Joburg Ballet offers its usual range of affordable ticket options for The Nutcracker, including half price on opening night, two budget-priced morning matinees with all seats just R100* and discounts for pensioners and groups.
