'The Nutcracker' in Cape Town will be presented this December in a magical production. This year's version of the ballet is that of Russian choreographer, Viktor Vynonen. It was first seen in Cape Town in 2000, when Viktor Barykin came to Cape Town to teach it.
The 'Nutcracker' Ballet is a ballet that always will remain a firm favourite with audiences of all ages throughout the world and is perfect for the festive season. Several young dancers from ballet studios in and around Cape Town will appear as the children in the show. The magical sets create the typical illusion and wonderment which is so loved in Tchaikovsky’s Ballet "The Nutcracker".
The Cape Town audiences will be treated with various performances of 'The Nutcracker' between 15 and 24 December 2017.
The annual 'Fairy Parade' in Cape Town will be held at 24 December 2017 following the 15h00 performance. Children are invited to come to the stage in their favourite fairy dress to receive a surprise gift by Santa Claus.
