Cape Town City Ballet dancer Mia Labuschagne.

Cape Town City Ballet, in collaboration with the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO), under the baton of Brandon Phillips, will return to Artscape for three performances only, from Thursday December 10 to Saturday December 12.

They will feature two works: George Balanchine’s Serenade and Moon Behind the Clouds, by South African choreographers Veronica Paeper, Celeste Botha, Kirsten Isenberg, Yaseen Manuel, Lindy Raizenberg, Louisa Talbot and Marlin Zoutman.

Serenade is staged by Rebecca Metzger via Zoom for The George Balanchine Foundation, and performed to the music of Tchaikovsky. Laced together through the text of Max Ehrmann’s Desiderata, Moon Behind the Clouds will be narrated by Marcel Meyer.

The programme will include a performance by sopranos Siphokazi Molteno and Hlengiwe Mkhwanazi, who will be singing The Flower Duet from the opera Lakme.

The shows are at 7.30pm on Thursday and Friday, and 3pm on Saturday. Tickets cost R300 and R500 and can be booked through Artscape Dial-a-Seat at 021 421 7695.
