Its not only Shakespeare at Maynardville …

Cape Town City Ballet

Cape Town City Ballet

Its not only Shakespeare characters that grace the Maynardville stage – the theatre is home to ballet productions too.  This year, Cape Town City Ballet pays tribute to Cole Porter with their production of ‘Night & Day’.

Cole Porter dominated the music scene from the 1930’s to 1950’s and his music still enjoys the popularity that it did all those years ago.  The production of Night & Day includes old time favourites like ‘Lets Misbehave’, ‘Too Darn Hot’ and ‘Night and Day’.  Funny, romantic songs like these made Porter the legendary composer that he was…

The production expresses the appeal through the generations of Porters music in dance and the team of choreographers have complemented the music with the charm and individuality of their characters.  Cast members Celeste George and Alrico Lieman dance a pad de deux to the well known ‘Lets do it, lets fall in love’ while the men are led by Lauren Rogers in an ensemble number to ‘Miss Otis Regrets’.  Sarah Elphick, an up and coming sax player joins the Cape Town City Ballet on stage to accompany a few numbers including a solo performance of ‘In the Still of the Night’.

The production is a wonderful combination of romance, elegance and charm.  Tickets are priced between R90 to R150 and can be booked at Computicket or through Dial-A-Seat on 021 421 7695.  Performances are scheduled for January 30th and February, 6th, 13th and 20th.

So for a spot of ballet in a spectacular setting and to brilliant music make sure you book a ticket before its too late.  If you book a weekend performance pack a picnic basket and make the most of a long, lazy afternoon at Maynardville before finishing off the proceedings with the show.  Don’t despair if you book a week night ticket – there should be plenty of time for you to kick pack on a picnic blanket before the ballet starts at around 8pm.

To Book:
Book at Computicket or through Dial-A-Seat on 021 421 7695.
Performances are scheduled for January 30th and February, 6th, 13th and 20th.
