The South African Ballet Theatre: ‘Carmen-the Ballet’

Contact info

On August 13th 2010, The South African Ballet Theatre (SABT) returns to the Mandela Stage, at the Joburg Theatre with the sizzling and sultry ballet ‘Carmen’.

The saga of Carmen and Don José is a fiery love story by French writer Prosper Mérimée and later adapted as an opera – one of the most famous and well-loved in the world – by Georges Bizet. Using Bizet’s famous score, Paeper’s ballet explores the tempestuous relationship between the streetwise Carmen and the young officer Don José.

This season of ‘Carmen-the Ballet’ is sponsored by The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF), and the National Arts Council (NAC).

Tickets prices vary from R105 to R290 with discounts for SABT Friends, Block bookings and selected corporate companies.

Parker’s Comedy Club

It’s a serious business, comedy.

Get it wrong and you can die on stage in front of a stony-faced audience. But if the comics tickle your funny bone, there’s really not much better than a rip-roaring night of stand-up comedy.

We sent Lesley to Parker’s Comedy & Jive in Montecasino for a night of fun and laughter. Read her review
