By incredible popular demand following a sold-out season at Oude Libertas earlier this year, Bovim Ballet brings back Sean Bovim's QUEEN AT THE BALLET, this season being staged at the Baxter Theatre for a strictly limited season from 8th – 18th August 2012.
QUEEN AT THE BALLET uses the athleticism of rock ballet en-pointe in a high impact production that will entertain people of all ages. As audiences have come to expect from Bovim Ballet productions, the show is packed with high artistic standards, innovative & original choreography, and powerful performances from the strong cast of dancers.
Michael Hankinson's exquisite recorded orchestral arrangements of Queen's music are further enhanced by the live gymnastic vocals of CITO (WONDERboom & Jesus Christ Superstar fame), Daniel Fisher (Fiddler on the Roof) and Goitsemang Lehobye.
