Zip Zap’s ‘Rhapsody’ to take to the stage at Artscape 


ZIP ZAP’S philharmonic circus show, Rhapsody, will take to the stage in Cape Town from Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th November 2022 at the Artscape Opera House, before it travels to Paris, France, for a three-month run at the Cirque Phénix. This will be the fourth time Zip Zap collaborates with a collective of orchestral musicians to bring to life a foot-stomping, jaw-dropping performance. 

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

Rhapsody includes traditional and contemporary circus acts, accompanied by a 17-piece troupe of musicians, led by conductor Chad Hendricks, and two dynamic Cape Town vocalists, Janine and Riyaan Cornelius. Expect to see daring acrobatics and a flawless display of aerial skills, all performed to the beat of the music – a show that will delight the whole family.

Brent van Rensburg, co-founder and artistic director at Zip Zap shared his excitement: “After a wonderfully successful season of MOYA in Johannesburg, I can’t wait for Cape Town to see our philharmonic circus show. Rhapsody is part of Zip Zap’s 30-year anniversary celebrations, and after its run at Artscape, the phenomenal talent and passion of these South African artists will be showcased in France.”
