Giselle at Joburg Theatre

10 performances only –  50% off for Friday performances on 4 and 11 October at 19:30

Giselle, the most sublime of all romantic ballets, returns to Joburg Theatre in Joburg Ballet’s season of ten performances, in association with the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

A heartrending story of love so powerful it reaches from beyond the grave, the ballet’s exquisite dancing lays bare a tale of passion, betrayal and forgiveness with one of the greatest of all ballerina roles at its centre.

Giselle will be staged by Joburg Ballet’s artistic director Iain MacDonald and ballet mistress Lauren Slade. Two SA ballet luminaries, Dawn Weller and Tanja Graafland, are coaching the dancers in the principal roles. Now based in Australia, Dawn Weller was artistic director of PACT Ballet for seventeen years while retired senior principal dancer Tanja Graafland is remembered as one of SA’s leading ballerinas.

All performances accompanied by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Eddie Clayton except Wed 9 Oct which will be performed to a recorded soundtrack to facilitate filming of the performance for commercial DVD release.
