  • Directed by Aviva Pelham
  • Conducted by Brandon Phillips

Heavenly Quartez is a talented group of singers born and bred in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. Heavenly Quartez is not just another classical group. They have a great cross-over appeal with a combination of different languages, including Afrikaans, English, Italian and Xhosa.

Nkumbuzo Nkonyana, Mawande Mxunyelwa, Melikhaya (Melly) Ndabeni and Sihle Mtitshana joined forces in 2008 and combined their powerful, versatile singing with youthful charm and an unbounded love of music. Their latest performances were at the resoundingly successful Cape Town Philharmonic’s Debut Gala Concert – A Symphonic Platform for Community Brilliance in February and their 10th Anniversary Concert in Khayelitsha in June. What a repertoire we have lined up for you! From Hooked on Beethoven to Nella Fantasia by Morricone. From Nessun Dorma by Puccini to Brindisi from Verdi’s ‘La Traviata’. From the modern hits Circle of Life by Elton John and I Believe in You, recorded by Celine Dion and Il Divo to a Big Band Selection. And of course, their acclaimed multilingual medley in Afrikaans, English, Italian and Xhosa. Heavenly Quartez will make you want to get up and sing with them!

Following their packed-to-the-rafters 10th Anniversay Concert at Artscape in December of last year,Nkumbuzo Nkonyana,  Melikhaya (Melly) Ndabeni and Sihle Mtitshana are once again joined by tenor Sipho Fubesi and guest artist Lynelle Kenned in a concert under the stars at Oude Libertas Amphitheatre.

Heavenly Quartez sang at the resoundingly successful Cape Town Philharmonic’s Debut Gala Concert – A Symphonic Platform for Community Brilliance in February of last year and held a celebratory concert in their home town of Khayelitsha in June.  Sipho Fubesi made his Royal Opera debut in 2013 in Parsifal. Other performances at the Royal Opera House include the world premiere of Heart of Darkness, ROH2 and Miss Fortune. Other productions include CandideLa Belle HélèneLa Clemenza di Tito,Carmen, Vanessa, Falstaff and The Yellow Sofa.  Soprano Lynelle Kenned is the star of Blood Brothers, Orpheus in AfricaWest Side Story (for which she won Fleur du Cap and Naledi Awards) and Calling Me Home. 

This fantastic line-up is under the masterful baton of Chad Hendricks, leading the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and is directed by Aviva Pelham.

The concert is an eclectic, moving, entrancing mix of music, ranging from opera and the musicals, to African traditional, from a Golden Globe award-winning song to modern classics … and an wondrous orchestral ‘solos’!

Heavenly Quartez is ‘n sangsensasie uit Khayelitsha wat saam met die Kaapse Filharmonies orkes gaan optree. Hulle word met staande ovasies begroet waar hulle ook al gaan. Hulle liefde vir musiek is aansteeklik en hulle repertorium is wyd en strek van Hooked on Beethoven na Nella Fantasia – Morricone en Nessun Dorma -Puccini tot by Brindisi uit Verdi se ‘La Traviata’. Aan die hedendaagse se kant word Circle of Life – Elton John en I Believe in You, -Celine Dion en Il Divo sowel as ‘n Big Band keurspel as hoogtepunte gehoor. Hulle hoogsaangeskrewe veeltalige keurspel in Afrikaans, Engels, Italiaans en Xhosa sal die gehoor wil laat saamsing!

Sie können ohne Zweifel mit einem Gefühl der Vorfreude ins Theater gehen, wo 4 exzellente Sänger, und das Kapstadt Philharmonische Orchester, ein unvergessliches Konzert anbietet. Ein außergewöhnliches Erlebnis wo der Sonnenuntergang das Publikum und den Bühnenhintergrund begrüßt.

Heavenly Quartez wird immer begeistert mit Jubel begrüsst da sie in vielfachen Sprachen singen. Afrikaans, Englisch, Italiänisch und Xhosa. Sie können sich freuen auf Hooked on Beethoven und Nella Fantasia -Morricone. Nessun Dorma – Puccini und Brindisi – Verdi’s ‘La Traviata’. An der modernen Seite Hits wie Circle of Life – Elton John , I Believe in You, – Celine Dion und Il Divo und eine Big Band Auswahl.

 


***CANCELLED*** Giselle – Cape Town City Ballet

06/03/2019
8:15 pm - 10:00 pm

Due to unforseen circumstances Cape Town City Ballet regret to inform their loyal public that the performances of Swingtime in the Vineyards and Giselle a the Oude Libertas Amphitheatre will no longer take place. Should anyone have any queries please be in contact via ceo@capetowncityballet.org.za

The CAPE TOWN CITY BALLET (CTCB) presents Giselle. This ballet was last performed at the OUDE LIBERTAS Amphitheatre by this company, then known as the CAPAB Ballet Co, in 1984

The leading roles of Giselle and Albrecht will be danced by our stars Laura Bosenberg with Daniel Szybkowski, Kirstel Paterson with Conrad Nusser and Mariette Opperman with Xola Putye

Giselle is a ballet in two acts with a libretto by Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Theophile Gautier. The music was composed by Adophe Adam, and the original choreography was created by Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot. The librettist took his inspiration from a poem by Heinrich Heine, and the ballet tells the story of a peasant girl named Giselle, whose ghost, after her premature death, protects her lover from the vengeance of a group of evil spirits called Wilis, female spirits who, jilted before their wedding day, rise from their graves at night and seek revenge upon men by dancing them to death.

The ballet was first presented at the Paris Opéra’s Salle le Peletier on 28 June 1841 with Carlotta Grisi as Giselle, Lucien Petipa as Albrecht, and Jean Coralli as Hilarion. In South Africa, the first performance of the ballet was presented in 1947 by the South African National Ballet, previously Cecily Robinson’s Ballet Club, with Alexis Rassine & Olive James in the leading roles.

In 1949, Anton Dolin produced the ballet for the South African National Ballet, who joined forces with the UCT Ballet Co for the occasion. Dolin partnered Alicia Markova, and they danced in Cape Town’s Alhambra Theatre. It was again produced by the UCT Ballet Co in 1955, featuring Alexis Rassine and Nadia Nerina,

The first time the ballet was danced by the newly-formed CAPAB Ballet Co was in 1965. David Poole created his version of the ballet in 1972 in the Nico Malan Opera House, when the leading roles were danced by Phyllis Spira and Eduard Greyling, with Elizabeth Triegaardt as Myrtha, Queen of the Wilis, and John Simons in the pivotal role of Hilarion – a version that was reproduced many times for the CAPAB Ballet Co.

The CAPE TOWN CITY BALLET has performed Poole’s version nine times since 1997, produced by Elizabeth Triegaardt, by kind permission of Owen Murray, who himself danced both Albrecht and Hilarion during his long career with the CAPAB Ballet Co. Giselle is an audience favourite and many will remember the other partnerships of Olga Twell with Keith Maidwell, Carol Kinsey with Johan Jooste, Nicolette Loxtonwith Philip Boyd, Tracy Li with Daniel Rajna, Marianne Bauer with Johnny Bovang and Keith Mackintosh with both Linda Smit and Clare Shepherd-Wilson.

The art of dance is musical, visual, technical and interpretive, and these qualities come strongly to the fore when dancing a role such as Giselle, Albrecht, or any of the supporting roles in the ballet.

When it comes to the corps de ballet, the choreography demands that each dancer is totally in sync with the music – not an easy task. The CTCB’s corps is recognised as being of world class and will again transport the audiences in the second act to the eerie and evil world of the Wilis.
