Presented by the South African National Dance Trust (SANDT) and Joburg Ballet, with support from the National Lotteries Commission, the Grand Gala will see The Royal Ballet principal dancers in a number of dazzling classical ballet highlights, including the show-stopping virtuoso pas de deux from Don Quixote. Both Nuñez and Muntagirov are at the peak of their careers and securing this exceptional duo for the once-off performance at Artscape in March 2020 is a major coup for the SANDT, which has also planned several educational and outreach activities that will offer local ballet teachers and dance students the opportunity to observe both guest artists and Joburg Ballet up close in class and rehearsal. 
     Tickets ranging from R150 to R450 are now on sale through Computicket outlets and online or through 0861 915 8000 and 021 421 7695. Exclusive VIP tickets at R650 per person are available directly from the SANDT for both the gala and access to the post-performance party attended by Marianela Nuñez, Vadim Muntagirov and members of Joburg Ballet.
