Following the recent sell-out success of The Sleeping Beauty, Cape Town City Ballet returns to Artscape from 26 – 28 September with Pas de Deux. A celebration of the pas de deux, the much anticipated moment when ballerina and danseur unite in a beautiful and effortless display of grace and supreme technique, the programme will feature some of the most popular dances for two soloists from ballets such as Anna Karenina, Le Corsaire, The Merry Widow, Scheherazade and Spartacus.
The pas de deux is traditionally seen as symbolic of a partnership in love. The principal dancers and soloists of Cape Town City Ballet are set to enthral audiences with a display of the art of partnering. Prima ballerina Tracy Li, who made a critically acclaimed comeback to the ballet stage this year, will be partnered by Xola Putye in the moving pas de deux from Spartacus. The sensational Mami Fuji, who had patrons on their feet after her recent debut in The Sleeping Beauty, will dance with Trevor Schoonraad in the pas de deux from Diane and Acteon.
