We are really looking forward to attending the beautiful ballet, Carmen at Joburg Theatre, and get swept up in the passionate story of the downfall of Don José, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen.
José abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts his military duties, yet eventually loses Carmen’s love to the glamorous matador Escamillo, after which José kills her in a jealous rage, and is a well known ballet and opera!
Carmen is brought to life by well known South African choreographer Veronica Paeper for ten performances only from 6th to 15th April accompanied by the relaunched Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra (JPO) who will breathe life in to composer Georges Bizet’s famous music, under the baton of conductor Brandon Phillips.
We have a double set of tickets valued at R 800 to give away to see the ballet on Saturday 7th April 2018 – the 19h30 performance at Joburg Theatre.
To stand a chance to win, make sure to enter your details below and let us know where the ballet is being staged.
