De Schipbreuk, of De Korsaren op het Eiland Ivica is a ballet in three acts that was performed in the African Theatre, Cape Town by "een gezelschap van jonge toneel- en dansliefhebbers" ("a young company of theatre and dance lovers") as a charity event on 18 and 25 August. (The group was possibly related to a similar French company active in Cape Town at the time.)

According to F.C.L. Bosman (1928) it may possibly have been a Dutch adaptation and translation of Miß Fanny, oder Der Schiffbruch ("Miss Fanny or the shipwreck", 1766), a German tragedy in five acts by Johann Christian Brandes (1735-1799)[1].
