Something wonderful is sure to happen when the ultimate fairytale – Joburg Ballet’s scintillating production of Cinderella – returns to the Joburg Theatre for just eight performances from Friday 30 September to Sunday 9 October.

Choreographed by Joburg Ballet’s artistic director Iain MacDonald and given its world premiere in 2013, Cinderella waltzes across the stage with Johann Strauss’s immortal melodies providing the perfect musical setting for this ultimate rags-to-riches tale. Designer Andrew Botha’s breathtaking designs frame the action while Joburg Ballet’s stars will set the stage alight with dancing in the grandly classical tradition.

Commenting on the return of Cinderella, artistic director Iain MacDonald said: “Cinderella has always been one of the company’s most popular ballets, both in our original version well as our current production which was last staged at the Joburg Theatre in 2016 and at the Teatro at Montecasino in 2018. Johann Strauss composed some of the most enchanting and memorable classical music ever written and the music to which Cinderella is danced is no exception.”

"Cinderella will be our first production since the start of the Covid pandemic where, from the outset, we can sell 100% of the Joburg Theatre’s seats. With our last season, La Traviata-The Ballet, the lifting of the 50% capacity to 100% came too late in the booking period for us to benefit from this increase,” added Joburg Ballet’s CEO, Esther Nasser. “Hopefully, Cinderella will see audiences returning to the ballet in droves! And certainly, there can be no more perfect ballet to welcome in summer than Cinderella".
