Go Behind the Scenes of Cape Town City Ballet's THE TIN SOLDIER, Dec 6
On the eve of the world premiere of Cape Town City Ballet's brand new production The Tin Soldier, the public has a once-off opportunity to take a peek behind the scenes of creating process of the production on Friday 6 December at 18h00 during INSIGHT into The Tin Soldier at the Artscape Opera House.
The evening will be presented by Cape Town City Ballet's Artistic Executive Keith Mackintosh as host. Choreographer and director, Robin van Wyk, along with his artistic team, will give the audience an in-depth look at the creation of a new ballet, from the glorious costumes, music to the sets. Dancers of the company will be present, demonstrating how placement of the choreography happens once rehearsals move onto the stage.
Promising magical holiday fun for the whole family, The Tin Soldier will be presented in the Artscape Opera House from 11-24 December 2013. Based on the Hans Christian Andersen's charming tale of a Tin Soldier who wins the heart of a Ballerina, the ballet company will be accompanied by the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Allan Stephenson at selected performances.
