This thrilling production sees the magnificent uShaka Sea World dolphins showcase their remarkable physical beauty and prowess to a glorious Christmas soundtrack. The 2018 production will have a vibrant homegrown feel and pay homage to the beauty of Africa, it’s people and song. 

Aptly themed “Under the African Skies”, it will see traditional Christmas songs reworked with vibrant African rhythms and well as rousing renditions of popular hits such as “A Million Dreams”, “A World in Union”, “Can you feel the love”, “Special Star” and Quincy Jones’ soulful version of the “Hallelujah Chorus”.

Children will be delighted to hear that Santa is once again heading South for Christmas and he’ll be bringing some of his friends with him. Adding to the magic of the evening will be a majestic homegrown chorus, led by local favourites the Durban Gospel Choir, with special guests, the angelic-voiced of the Glenwood Junior Primary School Choir and the dynamic vocal stylings of isicathimiya group, Young Mbazo #Mambazo. They will share the stage with rising pop sensation Lusandra Majola and an operatic prodigy.

Dolphins by Starlight is the perfect treat for young and old and all who get to enjoy it, always leave filled with Christmas cheer and reminded about the true meaning of Christmas.
