As wonderful as the ballet movies are (and we are grateful to be able to see ballets we have either not seen before or not seen for a very long time), the wonder of seeing ballet live is always better.  Joburg Ballet’’s production of Swan Lake at the Joburg Theatre will run from 17 April to 3 May 2015.  This time the production will feature magnificent new Russian-Gothic sets designed by Andrew Botha who known for his sumptuous but cost effective designs.   Friends of the Ballet paid for the design and construction of these new sets.
