Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Oude Libertas Amphitheatre
Oude Libertas Amphitheatre is an outdoor venue with a signature sophisticated sound; enjoy choir recitals, acapella groups, jazz and opera.
Kalk Bay Theatre
Size isn't everything as this intimate scaled-down theatre proves.
The Fugard
Named after South Africa's greatest playwright, The Fugard is all set to become Cape Town's greatest theatre.
Baxter Theatre
The Baxter Theatre is arguably more about the architecture than the performing arts that take place inside it, but the campus-based building is still a great place for culture vultures to take in a wide range of productions.
Cluver Forest Amphitheatre
With just a handful of performances each summer, the Paul Cluver Forest Amphitheatre ranks not only as the most beautiful and intimate concert venue in South Africa, but also the most exclusive. 
Theatre on the Bay
Theatre on the Bay is a delightfully intimate theatre that puts on a variety of West End-style musicals and smaller-scale dramas, comedies and revues.
Artscape
Artscape hosts both local and international musical productions within Apartheid-era architecture; with so much to take in, you won't know whether to look at the stage or your surroundings.
Maynardville Open-Air Theatre
Enjoy the balmy summer nights at the Maynardville Open-Air Theatre, ice-cold refreshment in-hand of course.
