Friday 24 October – Saturday 1 November, 7:30 pm
Artscape Theatre, Foreshore
As part of Cape Town City Ballet‘s 80th Birthday Celebration, artistic director Robin van Wyk will be choreographing a new children’s production, Thumbelina. Treat the kids to the much-loved Hans Christian Anderson tale of a tiny fairy princess and her journey from being born in an acorn to marrying her handsome prince.
The leading roles will be performed by members of CTCB, while budding ballerinas and princes will have the opportunity to impress with their spring pointes, petits jetés and arabesques in the roles of the jitterbugs, snow crystals, blue birds, mice, chickens and more.
There will be weekend matinees and evening performances, with the matinees starting at 2 pm.
