From the very first notes of Tchaikovsky’s overture to The Nutcracker, a sense of mystery and magic pervades the theatre as Herr Drosselmeyer sets in train the events that will see his beloved nephew, Hans Peter, freed from the enchantment of the evil Mouse King by the resourceful Clara.

The Nutcracker unfolds over two glorious acts. For Act I it is Christmas Eve and we are brought to a party at which Drosselmeyer gives young Clara a nutcracker doll – beginning a night that includes a magically growing Christmas tree, a midnight battle of toy soldiers at which the Nutcracker defeats the villainous Mouse King and his army of mice, and a headlong pas de deux in which Clara and Hans Peter meet and celebrate their triumph before being enveloped in a magical snowstorm. Act II whisks the young pair off to the Kingdom of the Sweets, where they are entertained by the Sugar Plum Fairy with her handsome Prince and her glittering court in a series of dazzling dances. Peter Wright’s classic production, first seen at Covent Garden in 1984, is an essential part of Christmas for audiences of all ages.

Peter Wright’s classic production, first seen at Covent Garden in 1984, is an essential part of Christmas for audiences of all ages.

Tchaikovsky’s score contains some of the best-known melodies in ballet, from the flurrying sounds of the Waltz of the Snowflakes to the dream-like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the vigorous Russian Dance. Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs draw upon 19th-century images of Christmas, making this a classic production for the festive season.

On Christmas Eve, Marie’s godfather, Drosselmeyer, gives her a strange toy: a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man. At midnight, when the celebrations are over, all the toys magically come to life. The nutcracker grows to human size and takes charge of the tin soldiers, flying to the rescue of Marie, who is threatened by the Mouse King and his mouse army.

Based on E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story, The Nutcracker is one of the greatest classics in the world. With iconic music by Tchaikovsky, and enchanting sets and costumes, this beautiful tale explores the universal themes of love, power and evil.

This choreographic version, created for the Bolshoi by Yuri Grigorovich, is full of romanticism and philosophical reflections on ideal love. Masterfully interpreted by the Bolshoi dancers, it will enchant the whole family for the festive season, proving that one is never too young or too old to be swept away by The Nutcracker.

Athol Fugard's latest play, The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek, is set for its South African premiere at the Fugard Theatre.

Eric Abraham presents a Fugard Theatre production of Athol Fugard’s The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek.

Internationally acclaimed and multiple award-winning playwright Athol Fugard, who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Tony Award in 2011, returns to the Fugard Theatre with his acclaimed new play, The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek, a story inspired by the life of a farm worker called Nukain Mabuza, a self-taught artist living in segregated pre-liberation South Africa. The play enjoyed a highly acclaimed debut season in New York in 2015, which was extended several times.

Ageing Nukain has spent his life transforming the rocks on a koppie at Revolver Creek into a vibrant garden of painted flowers. Aided by his young companion Bokkie, we now find Nukain confronting his last challenge — to paint the huge boulder at the summit. Yet before long, the landowner’s wife, Elmarie Kleynhans arrives and makes demands about the painting, laying bare the profound rifts of a country hurtling towards the end of apartheid. When Bokkie – now known as Jonathan Sejake – returns years later, it is to confront the legacy on Revolver Creek left to him as a young man trying to find his place in the new South Africa.

In his work, Fugard continues to explore the limits of human experience against the backdrop of the changing South African political reality. The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek is his latest effort to confront not only the past, but also the present.

The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek features an all South Africa cast of highly acclaimed Anna-Mart van der Merwe (Begeerte, Binnelanders) who makes her Fugard Theatre debut, Tshamano Sebe (The Fugard Theatre’s Master Harold and the Boys) and Sne Dladla (The Fugard Theatre’s Orpheus in Africa, District Six – Kanala) who recently won the Fleur du Cap Theatre Award in the category of Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for his various roles in David Kramer's Orpheus in Africa. The production will be co-directed by Athol Fugard and Paula Fourie. The creative team includes critically acclaimed set designer Saul Radomsky (The Fugard Theatre’s The Shadow of the Hummingbird, District Six – Kanala, Orpheus in Africa), costume designer Birrie Le Roux (The Fugard Theatre’s West Side Story, The Blue Iris, Orpheus in Africa), lighting designer Mannie Manim, (The Fugard Theatre’s The Shadow of the Hummingbird, The Blue Iris) and sound design by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder (The Fugard Theatre’s West Side Story, The Rocky Horror Show, Orpheus in Africa).

The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek runs at the Fugard Studio Theatre from 23 August 2016 for a limited season only that must close on 24 September 2016. Tickets ranging from R140 to R180 are available through the Fugard Theatre box office on 021 461 4554 or Computicket and 08619158000. The usual excellent discounts are available to all registered Friends of the Fugard when booking through the Theatre’s box office.

Winner: Best Actress (Emily Child) and Best New Director (Louis Viljoen) at the 2015 Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards.

The Pervert Laura, an unsettling and dark psycho-drama, will be presented by Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre at the Fugard Studio Theatre from 6 to 30 May, 2015. At the recent Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards held at Artscape in March, the play won playwright Louis Viljoen the Rosalie van der Gucht Prize for Best New Director. Viljoen also won the Best New South African Script award for another of his acclaimed plays, The Kingmakers, making him the only double winner on the night. The Pervert Laura also received a nomination in the category of Best New South African Script. Emily Child won the Best Lead Actress Award for her portrayal of the titular character in The Pervert Laura and co-star Guy de Lancey received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his work.
 
The production, which garnered rave reviews after its premiere season at the historical Little Theatre in December last year, stars Child (King Lear, Champ, Don't Dress for Dinner, A Certain Lady) as Laura, with a powerhouse supporting cast of Terry Norton (Othello, Equus, A Doll's House, Rainbow Scars), Nicholas Pauling (Amadeus, Hamlet, Waiting for the Barbarians, Champ, The Frontiersmen), Guy de Lancey (Cosi, The Birdwatchers, Endgame) and newcomer Sarah Potter (Four Small Gods, The Lover, Ebola). Child, Norton, Pauling and de Lancey are all former Fleur du Cap Theatre Award nominees and winners.
 
The Pervert Laura follows 30-year-old Laura through a week in her life. In conversations with her therapist, an attempt at an affair in a seedy hotel room, and through arguments with her family, Laura reveals herself to be a woman on the road to absolute self-annihilation. As secrets are unearthed and accusations are made and relationships are shattered, the true source of Laura's decision to veer from the path society chose for her becomes clear. The play is an uncomfortable journey into the dark heart of a woman's past, and what awaits her in the darkness is more monstrous than she could have imagined. It is a character study of a woman disassembling her life that becomes a horrific odyssey as the story unfolds.
 
Advance booking is recommended for this limited season.

Warning: The Pervert Laura contains explicit language, nudity and scenes of a sexual nature. Strictly no under 18s. Please note that there will be no entry after the start of the performance.

Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life.

The plot of this lavish production is loosely based on Théophile Gauthier’s novel Le Roman de la Momie. French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece.

With its exotic setting, impressive parades, spectacular variations and crowd scenes, this grand 19th-century Orientalist fantasy is one of the most remarkable productions in the Bolshoi’s repertoire. The main roles are here danced by Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova, Nina Kaptsova and Ruslan Skvortsov.

First staged in St Petersburg in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty is the pinnacle of classical ballet: a perfect marriage of Petipa’s choreography and Tchaikovsky’s music and a glorious challenge for every dancer onstage. It is also The Royal Ballet’s signature work. To mark the Company’s 75th birthday in 2006, Monica Mason and Christopher Newton revitalized its landmark 1946 production, which re-established Petipa’s choreography as recorded by Imperial Ballet régisseur Nicholas Sergeyev, to a scenario and staging developed by Ninette de Valois herself, founder of The Royal Ballet. With Oliver Messel’s gorgeous original designs wonderfully re-imagined by Peter Farmer, and additional choreography by Anthony Dowell, Christopher Wheeldon and Frederick Ashton, today’s Sleeping Beauty not only captures the mood of the original but shows that this is very much a living work for The Royal Ballet, growing and changing with the Company while celebrating its past.

A treasured tale of fairies, spells, and storybook romance: The Sleeping Beauty is the ultimate in classical ballet. Yuri Grigorovich’s adaptation of Marius Petipa’s choreography, called “the best of the Bolshoi” (The New York Times), is paired with some of Tchaikovsky’s most memorable melodies. The Sleeping Beauty stars David Hallberg, the first ever American Premier dancer (principal dancer) at the Bolshoi, as Prince Désirè and Svetlana Zakharova as Princess Aurora. This production was one of the very first performed in the newly renovated Bolshoi Theatre.

In this resplendent and magical classic, the Bolshoi dancers take us on a dream-like journey through this classic fairytale complete with jewel fairies, a magical kingdom, a youthful princess and a handsome prince in this purest style of classical ballet. The Bolshoi’s sumptuous staging with its luxurious sets and costumes gives life to Perrault’s fairy tale unlike any other. A must-see!

Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and docile Bianca, including Lucentio. However her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered shrew Katherina, is herself married.

French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers, and achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, nonstop dance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoiís audacity and energy in a completely new way.

One of the greatest rock bands of all time, The Who celebrate 50 years of classic songs live in London’s Hyde Park. The show-stopping performance features all of their greatest hits and proves The Who are still one of the best live bands playing today.

Recorded in front of a sell-out crowd of 65,000 fans, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend deliver a definitive set list of all the greatest hits as The Who take their audience on an ʻAmazing Journeyʼ through their entire career from classic albums such as Who’s Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation and Live At Leeds up to the present day

Featuring ‘My Generation’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘Baba O’Riley’, ‘Who Are You’, ‘The Kids Are Alright’, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, ‘You Better You Bet’ and many more, audiences on a rocking rollercoaster through The Who’s outstanding catalogue of hits. Co-founders Roger and Pete are joined by Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr’s son) on drums and Pino Palladino on bass to help create that signature sound that has made The Who such unmissable performers.

Complementing the live performance, the exclusive cinema featurette includes interviews with Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend talking about playing Hyde Park and what The Who means to them and their fans after 50 years. Other contributors include Robert Plant, Iggy Pop, Johnny Marr and others, explaining just how influential and admired the band were - and still are - by their rock peers.

It was a few miles west of Hyde Park that 50 years ago Townshend, Daltrey and the late Keith Moon and John Entwistle created the soundtrack for the capital's original Mod scene - playing adrenaline (and more) fuelled vignettes of aspiring working class teenage life. It is the band's ability to still thrill five decades later which makes this film an electrifying cinematic event not to be missed.
