Fairies and little ballerinas join the big ballerinas on stage for a special Fairy Parade at Artscape.

Kiddies in Cape Town are in for a special experience this Christmas Eve, when the stage of the Artscape Opera House will be transformed into a wonderland of fairies, princes, princesses and other young storybook heroes with Cape Town City Ballet’s annual Fairy Parade.

On Tuesday 24 December 2013, following the 2pm performance of The Tin Soldier, all the young audience members – who are encouraged to dress up in their favourite fairy tale costumes – will be invited to join the stars of the ballet company on stage to meet the dancers up-close in their sparkly and magical costumes.

Father Christmas will also be there with little surprises for the young ones, while a professional photographer will capture the special moments on camera.

The Tin Soldier is a brand new ballet by Robin van Wyk, offering a fun family outing that will charm young and old with the touching story of a tin soldier who falls in love with a paper ballerina. The ballet takes the audience on a journey of fantasy, magic and laughter, following the adventures of the brave Tin Soldier as he endeavours to win the heart of his pretty ballerina.
