The Nutcracker

Joburg Ballet returns to the Teatro at Montecasino with a magnificent festive season rendition of The Nutcracker for 11 performances from 1 to 10 December.

Staged by guest producer Angela Malan, The Nutcracker, the world’s most magical classical ballet, is set to transport audiences to a fairy tale world as Clara and her Nutcracker Prince journey through sweets, snowflakes and waltzing flowers to reach the enchanted realm of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

The performances are complemented by music by Tchaikovsky, beautiful sets, costumes and lighting, making The Nutcracker an unforgettable treat for children and adults. It also aims to showcase all the wonder and magic of The Nutcracker and capture the timelessness of the great classical ballet tradition.

On Saturday 25 November, Joburg Ballet hosts an Open Day for The Nutcracker at the company’s studios at the Joburg Theatre from 10h00 to 13h00, offering a glimpse into the creative process involved in preparing this iconic classical ballet for the stage.
