Cape Town City Ballet leaps into Spring with a vibrant new programme titled Alchemy – Three Dances and presented at the Artscape Opera House from 6 – 13 November.
Alchemy – Three Dances honours three of the world’s most celebrated male choreographers, and includes the South African premiere of Robert North’s internationally acclaimed Troy Game, as well as George Balanchine’s exquisite Concerto Barocco and Jiří Kylián’s arresting Falling Angels. This presentation marks the first time a Kylián work has been staged on a South African company.
‘The dancers of Cape Town City Ballet illustrate their prowess and stylistic diversity in these three very different works choreographed by these ballet giants,’ says Debbie Turner, CEO of Cape Town City Ballet. ‘With the lyrical beauty of Concerto Barocco, the arresting power of Falling Angels and the delicious humour of Troy Game, we have strived to compile a programme that will lift your spirits for the start of a new season and time.’
Alchemy – Three Dances will be presented from 6 – 13 November. Performances are on 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 November at 19:30, with a matinee on Saturday 13 November at 15:00. Tickets cost from R195 – R350. Bookings can be made at Artscape Dial-a-seat 021 421 7695 or through Computicket.
