Don Quixote – Cape Town City Ballet

20 to 29 October 2017

don quixote 2The Cape Town City Ballet presents Liane Lurie’s revival of the popular full length ballet, Don Quixote. This production captures the humour, Spanish flavour and thrills of the original Cervantes work. The ballet is accompanied by the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Brandon Phillips, at all but one of the performances, and stars Laura Bosenberg, Mariette Opperman and Thomas Thorne.

With music by Ludwig Minkus and choreography after Petipa, Gorsky and Nureyev, Ms Lurie incorporates all the traditionally-expected virtuoso pas de deux and solos, along with some unexpected surprises. A light-hearted ballet in 3 acts, filled with a combination of bravado and pure classicism.

Venue: Artscape Opera House, Artscape Theatre Centre, D.F. Malan St, Foreshore, Cape Town
Time: Fri & Sat 7.30pm | Sat again at 2pm | Sun 3pm
Cost: R100 – R350

  1. I love being mesmerized by the enchanting world of ballet, even though this would be my 2nd live performance. What better way to share a special evening of Don Quixote with the love of my dreams amidst life’s busy schedules!!

  2. I would love to experience Don Quixote – Cape Town City Ballet with my daughter who is 3 years old and believes that she is a ballerina.

    I would like to go and watch this. I set out to do different things with my friends in this beautiful city and this would definitely make that goal come true.

  4. This would be my first ballet. I’d love to experience this with a friend who has been telling me so much about her love for the art and I know I would really enjoy this!

  5. I would love to capture the essence of Cape Town City Ballet’s Don Quixote – Artscape is my most favourite place to be! #Ineedtowinthis!
    The Spanish costumes, a show filled with bravado and surprises – I’m loving it already!

  6. CAN’T WAIT to try catch Cape Town City Ballet’s Don Quixote (even though I live in Grahamstown!) One of my favourite ballets ever – so much colour, life and attitude! Sure it’s gonna rock 🙂
