Bring on the festive cheer!

There’s no better way to get in the festive mood than heading over to Johannesburg Zoo for the Festival of Lights and an entertaining performance of The Nutcracker with a twist. 

Joburg Ballet’s Nutcracker with a Twist is a fun-filled piece, created by artistic director Iain MacDonald, offers a glimpse of our city on Christmas Eve and showcases familiar characters, from pantsula dancers and shoppers in a mall to graffiti artists and lots more.

The music for this jazzy slice of urban life is from the Glenn Miller Band and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Featuring the dancers of Joburg Ballet and students of the Joburg Ballet School, this performance runs for about 30 minutes at the Festival of Lights at the Johannesburg Zoo from 22 – 29 November 2020.
