Zip Zap’s philharmonic circus show, Rhapsody, will take to the stage from Thursday November 3 to Sunday November 6 at the Artscape Opera House, before it travels to France, for a three-month run at the Cirque Phénix in Paris.

Rhapsody includes traditional and contemporary circus acts, accompanied by a 17-piece collective of orchestral musicians, led by conductor Chad Hendricks, and vocalists, Janine and Riyaan Cornelius.

“It is a breathtaking production with world class circus acts in tandem with a world class orchestra,” says Dr Marlene Le Roux, Artscape Theatre Centre CEO.

Shows are at 7pm, with 3pm matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost from R190 to R350. Book through Computicket. For corporate and group bookings as well as more information on a VIP Lounge Experience for Rhapsody at Artscape, email
