A Cinderella Xmas at the ballet in Cape Town

The Cape Town City Ballet will present Veronica Paeper’s popular full-length Cinderella from 17 December to 24 December at Artscape Opera House.

Tickets are between R90 – R175 and are available at Computicket and Dial-A-Seat 021 421 7695.

The ballet tells the classic fairytale story of the young Cinderella and her two ugly stepsisters, Violet and Daffodil and their search for the Prince at the ball. The romantic highpoint comes with the pas de deux in the second act between the now glittering Cinderella and the handsome prince.

The role of Cinderella will be danced alternately by Laura Bosenberg, Megan Swart and Celeste George and the Prince by Thomas Thorne, Xola Putye and Alex Vivian-Riding. The ballet is full of humour and fairytale escapism. The Cape Town City Ballet’s male dancers take on the roles of the stepsisters, providing this production with some delightfully funny moments. Paeper’s award-winning Cinderella continues to entertain audiences of all ages.

A special performance for children will take place on 24 December, Christmas Eve. Children are invited to come dressed as their favourite fairytale character. There will be a fairy parade after the show where the children will be invited to meet Santa Claus and have their photo taken with Cinderella.
