Events in Pietermaritzburg by Dante Alighieri


Thank you Pietermaritzburg for joining us!

A hugely successful and wonderfully glamorous night. We are already looking forward to next year’s Opera night!


The guests were treated to an unforgettable performance from four acclaimed artists including:


Khmbuzile Dhlamini from Gauteng Opera who won the Arts, Culture & Tourism Eisteddfod and the South African Post Office Music Eisteddfod.


Lucky Sibande who began singing as a boy soprano in church then went on to join the cenestra male choir as the youngest 1st tenor singer at the age of 19 under the baton of Mr Themba Madlopha.


Bongiwe Madlala who was one of four singers elected to sing at the Global Summit Women of the World, which was held in Hong Kong. 


Andrew Warburton is one of South Africa’s most distinguished keyboard virtuosi


Greeting to all our Students, Members and Friends!


We are very pleased to see that the cultural vibe in Pietermaritzburg is increasing, slowly but constantly.

The most recent gratifying confirmation was the great success of the third edition of the QUIZ GAME promoted by Societa’ Dante Alighieri in Pietermaritburg, on 3RD September.


It is an initiative in which four schools of Pietermaritzburg,  ALLANDALE PRIMARY SCHOOL, DECCAN ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL, NORTHLANDS PRIMARY SCHOOL, TPA FULL SERVICE SCHOOL, participated with great pleasure, interest and fun, of the students, the teachers, parents and friends. A wonderful group of at least 130 people convened to enjoy this annual event. 12 teams were involved, each composed by two boys and two girls of grades 5/6/7. It was amazing to watch them, how frenzy they were to consult each other to put the right answer to the many different quiz!


And, finally, at the end of the game, each student and each school got a prize according to the achieved score. The winning team belonged to DECCAN PRIMARY SCHOOL.

The event ended with a tasty buffet, offered to the students, the teachers, parents and relatives who shared with us the emotional atmosphere of this event. 


Congratulations guys! And thank you all for made this day a special one!
