.Earlier today I had the great pleasure of attending a fund raising performance of various stunning pieces from the recent repertoire of Cape Town City Ballet.
Today was the third visit for me thanks to the invitation from my friends and acquaintances at the International Women’s Club (Cape Town division) especially Caroline Gilbert a long time friend and fellow tutu follower. It was a pleasure to see so many gorgeous Ladies under one roof, all glass in hand, helping to support this wonderful institution and essential part of the Cape Town Arts scene.
The two performances that stand out for me where the par de deux from an upcoming new production of Romeo and Juliet, we were the first to see this beautiful piece. Also a delightful performance of scenes from Copelia soon to be performed with the Cape Town Philarmonic at the Artscape.
Something I find particularly disturbing about this wonderful performing arts centre is that they receive no public funding whatsoever !!
All expenses and salaries are paid from public donation or ticket sales !!
Sorry but what the heck is going on here? Performing Arts is an essential part of any city’s fabric especially in countries such as ours that has such a diverse and eclectic heritage, surely culture and tradition is so important ?
We can contribute regularly or donate ant sum direct to; Cape Town City Ballet at Nedbank St. Georges street. code 123209 account number 1232008842 or contact them on email@example.com
If you would like information about how to get involved with the International Womens Club (I.W.C) you can google them or contact either Suzette Raymond, Giovanna Sartor, Caroline Gilbert on Facebook, I’m sure they will love to hear from you.
Looking forward to hearing and maybe seeing you soon. Thank you for reading my blog. xx
