Bring the Family to Cape Town City Ballet's Fantasy-Filled TIN SOLDIER, Beg. Today
Don't miss the chance to bring your family to the ballet - Cape Town City Ballet's fantasy-filled new ballet The Tin Soldier opens at Artscape today 11 December.
The Tin Soldier, choreographed by Cape Town City Ballet's artistic director Robin van Wyk, guarantees perfect family entertainment during the upcoming festive season. It tells the tale of a little boy who receives a set of tin soldiers for Christmas, but one of the soldiers has a broken leg. At midnight the toys come to life and the Tin Soldier falls in love with a beautiful Ballerina, who lives in a glass castle. The evil Jack-in-the-Box kicks the Tin Soldier out of the toy room and he goes on a wonderful adventure where he meets cats, water-babies, fishermen and a flirtatious cook. The Tin Soldier is eventually returned to the little boy, who takes him to the toymaker to repair him. The Toymaker shows the little boy a magical place within the toyshop, where everything comes to life.
Presented at the Artscape Theatre Complex in Cape Town, this delightful new ballet forms part of Cape Town City Ballet's annual festive season productions, which will also include Belles and Beaux from 18 to 22 Dec, and Night & Day which will open on New Year's Eve 31 Dec and runs until 11 Jan 2014.
