Ballet fans have plenty to look forward to in 2013
10 December 2012 | The Citizen
The highlight of 2012 was the first SA production of the classic, Le Corsaire, at the Joburg Theatre in July.
For this handsome staging, Samb was augmented by additional dancers to make up a cast of almost 100. Samb stars shared the stage with guest artists from Australia, Canada and the US.
For 2013, Samb has put together a grand schedule, incorporating some of ballet’s best productions.
These will include the scintillating classic Don Quixote in March.
The show welcomes guest artists Michaela DePrince, Ekaterina Khanyukova and Brooklyn Mack. DePrince will also return following from her spectacular visit for Le Corsaire in 2012.
A brand new Cinderella, choreographed by artistic director Iain MacDonald, will be performed to Johann Strauss’s only ballet score, Aschenbrödel, and serves as a lush, lilting accompaniment to the rags- to-riches fairytale, which takes place in September.
Next year will also welcome The Nutcracker at the South African State Theatre, Pretoria, as well as several other seasons and other performances.
