In line with the latest advice from the South African government on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre's seasons of Swan Lake at the Artscape Opera House and the Teatro at Montecasino cannot go ahead in April/May 2020.
But, we're happy to announce that the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre's Swan Lake will still be coming to Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Swan Lake will now be playing at the Teatro at Montecasino and at the Artscape Opera House in April/May 2021. If you have already purchased your tickets, your tickets will automatically be transferred to new dates. They have carefully planned the new dates so that most of you can still have your same seat(s), on the same day of the week, and at the same performance time!
Additionally, to say thank you for your patience during this time and for your valued support, they will give you one exclusive St Petersburg Ballet Theatre South African tour souvenir programme for you and your guests to share and enjoy.
There is a little bit of work to do behind the scenes to coordinate this smooth changeover, but rest assured your seats for your new performance date will be held for you while they make the necessary preparations. Your patience during this period is greatly appreciated.
You will receive more detailed information via email from Computicket, so watch your inbox for that communication.
The South African season has been postponed to April/May 2021. April 2020 to Friday, 01 May 2020.

The Symphony Choir of Johannesburg and the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra conducted by Richard Cock present Brahms Requiem at the Linder Auditorium this October. Johannes Brahms (7 May 1833 – 3 April 1897) was a German composer and pianist of the Romantic period. He is often grouped with the likes of Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the “Three Bs” of classical music. Brahms composed his Requiem between 1865 – 1868, shortly after the deaths of his beloved mother and friend Robert Schumann. Don't miss out on this performance by the Symphony Choir of Johannesburg and the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra. Maestro Richard Cock is sure to lead the performers in a delightful symphony of sound and voice. Book your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
