Choreographed by Joburg Ballet’s artistic director Iain MacDonald in 2013, Cinderella will waltz across The Teatro stage with Johann Strauss’s champagne-infused melodies providing the perfect musical setting for the ultimate rags-to-riches tale. Andrew Botha’s glittering designs frame the action and the full company will light up the theatre in a family-friendly production brimming with charm and magic.
“Strauss composed some of the most enchanting and memorable classical music ever written and Cinderella, his only ballet score, is no exception. With Christmas just around the corner, it’s the perfect outing this holiday season,” MacDonald said. “We’re also inviting our audience members to bring a little magic into a child’s life this Christmas by depositing a gift in our special gift box in the main foyer before any Cinderella performance and we’ll pass it on to our chosen charity, NG Welfare.”
Bryan Hill, Teatro general manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting this exceptional production and we know that Joburg Ballet’s many fans, both existing and new, will enjoy an incomparable performance when visiting The Teatro at Montecasino this festive season.”
General manager of Montecasino Mike Page added: “Montecasino is all about making memorable moments for all our visitors – and Cinderella will add a special touch of magic to our exciting festive offering. We look forward to welcoming the superlative Joburg Ballet and their enthusiastic and delighted audiences in December.”
