Cape Town City Ballet to Bring PAS DE DEUX to South Africa's Artscape, 26-28 Sept.
Following the recent sell-out success of The Sleeping Beauty, Cape Town City Ballet returns to Artscape from 26 - 28 September with Pas de Deux. A celebration of the pas de deux, the much anticipated moment when ballerina and danseur unite in a beautiful and effortless display of grace and supreme technique, the programme will feature some of the most popular dances for two soloists from ballets such as Anna Karenina, Le Corsaire, The Merry Widow, Scheherazade and Spartacus.
The pas de deux is traditionally seen as symbolic of a partnership in love. The principal dancers and soloists of Cape Town City Ballet are set to enthrall audiences with a display of the art of partnering. Prima ballerina Tracy Li, who made a critically acclaimed comeback to the ballet stage this year, will be partnered by Xola Putye in the moving pas de deux from Spartacus. The sensational Mami Fuji, who had patrons on their feet after her recent debut in The Sleeping Beauty, will dance with Trevor Schoonraad in the pas de deux from Diane and Acteon.
Pas de Deux will be presented by Cape Town City Ballet in the Artscape Theatre from 26 - 28 September 2013. Tickets from R 50 - R 150 can be booked at Computicket or Artscape Dial-a-Seat on 021 421 7695. All performances danced to recordings.
