Royal Moscow Ballet has toured successfully around the globe presenting more than a thousand performances. The company, which consists of graduates of the best Russian choreography, ballet and dance schools, premiered as the Royal Moscow Ballet on the 12 August 2002, founded by Anatoly Emelianov and Anna Aleksidze. All ballets for this tour are choreographed by Anatoly Emelianov.

This tour continues last year’s theme celebrating great Russian composer, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsk.. This time two pieces are on the bill: Romeo and Juliet which is one of the best loved one-act ballets, featuring a score by Tchaikovsky, based on Shakespeare’s tragic tale of star-crossed young lovers.

The Symphony No. 6, also known as the Pathétique Symphony, is Tchaikovsky’s final completed symphony. There is much debate as to what inspired this beautiful piece. The composer entitled the work “The Passionate Symphony”, that was then incorrectly translated into French as “pathétique”, meaning “solemn” or “emotive”.

German composer Carl Heinrich Maria Orff, is best known for his distinctive cantata Carmina Burana (1935) based on 24 poems, mostly boisterous and bawdy, from the medieval
collection of texts of the same name. The opening, O Fortuna, was famously used in an iconic advert for Old Spice aftershave and as the X Factor theme. The ballet performed for this tour will be a new production of Carmina Burana.

The tour visits Johannesburg Linder Auditorium on Saturday 2 March at 3pm and 7pm and Sunday 3 March at 2pm; Pretoria’s Atterbury Theatre on 4 and 7 March at 7pm; Gabarone’s International Convention Centre on 5 March at 7pm; Durban’s Playhouse Opera on Saturday 9 March at 2pm and 6pm; the East London Guild Theatre on Monday 11 March at 7pm; and Bloemfontein’s Sand du Plessis Theatre on 12 March at 7pm.

Published

As a stylish leap year treat, Urban Lime and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra are offering an elegant Thursday evening out for one lucky couple: after-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and two tickets to the final KZNPO Symphony Season concert in Durban City Hall, on Thursday 5 March at 7.30pm.

  1. Who’s giant 600sqm. portrait hangs alongside the Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank building) in Anton Lembede St?
  2. Where are the KZNPO Summer Season Symphony concerts being performed?
Std. T&C’s apply

Chambers Club, South Africa’s newest members’ club, is housed in Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank head office). It is a members’ club for South Africa and Africa’s business and professional community located in the iconic Professional Quarter in the heart of the city, which is open to the public on evenings and weekends.

The beautiful building was designed by famed architect Norman Eaton in central Durban which has been transformed into a professional quarter for the legal fraternity, business community, entrepreneurs and creatives as part of an extensive city-wide project by the visionary team from Urban Lime.

One of the special features of the Chambers Club is a beautiful rooftop garden which overlooks the city – with commissioned sculptures, a water feature, quinine trees, indigenous grasses and aloes. This carefully created space is an eventual realisation of what Norman Eaton originally wished for – a tranquil roof top garden which is ideal for an after-work alfresco sundowner to meet colleagues and friends before heading home.

The Club offers facilities geared for legal practioners and businesspeople: meeting rooms, interview rooms, board rooms, restaurant, bar, lounge, parking facilities and cloakroom. It is perfect for professionals and those looking for an elegant, safe quiet place to meet, work and dine in the middle of town.

The KZN Philharmonic perform two Beethoven favourites, the Leonore Overture No 1 and the Triple Concerto, played by pianist, Malcolm Nay, violinist Tai Murray and KZNPO’s very own cellist Aristide du Plessis. The evening closes with a performance of Bizet’s delightful Symphony in C – all under the baton of Netherlands born conductor Arjan Tien who makes a popular return to round off the season on 5 March.
