Seating in the Artscape Opera House will be strictly limited to 250 seats due to social distancing and government regulations. All Covid-19 regulations will be in place including social distancing and wearing masks for entry.
“With such limited seating at our recent sold-out short run, many patrons did not have the chance to experience this magnificent South African production by the powerhouse creative team of choreographer Veronica Paeper, designer Peter Cazalet and lighting designer Wilhelm Disbergen,” says Debbie Turner, CEO of Cape Town City Ballet
“We are therefore delighted to have the opportunity to return to the stage for an additional seven performances with increased seating. However space is still extremely limited so I encourage patrons to book in advance
