Curlew and Amagokra (Heroes) in Langa

May 23 @ 6:00 pm

- R80
Curlew and Amagokra (Heroes) in Langa

Cape Town Opera, in collaboration with the University of Cape Town Opera School, presents an additional performance of Curlew and Amagokra (Heroes) at Guga S’thebe Centre in Langa.

The production sees Benjamin Britten’s Curlew River – based on a Japanese ‘noh’ play about a mother’s loss of a child and her redemption through spirituality – paired with a new South African opera about women’s strength through ordeal, composed by Sibusiso Njeza and written by Asanda Chuma Sopotela.

These two operas, sung in English and isiXhosa, are platforms for young African opera soloists from the University of Cape Town Opera School and the Cape Town Opera Young Artists Programme to explore contemporary themes and musical styles of the 20th and 21st centuries.

This performance is in addition to Two Performances at Kenilworth Ubuntu Novalis Institute.
