Cape Town – Cape Town City Ballet is kicking off 2018 with a bang. 

The local ballet company is starting the year with a ground-breaking adaptation of Alexander Pushkin’s short story Mozart and Salieri.

Acclaimed choreographer, Marc Goldberg, has combined a classical story with a 21st century design to bring a sweeping and cinematic experience to modern ballet as it’s never been seen before.

The show boasts 3D-mapping , animated projections and costumes by three separate designers and is currently on stage at Artscape Opera House in Cape Town with only 3 performances left. (Find out more here)
