AMAGOKRA AND CURLEW RIVER – sold out

  • Post author:

Cape Town Opera, in collaboration with the UCT Opera School, presents a double bill of Sibusiso Njeza’s Amagokra and Benjamin Britten’s Curlew River. These two contrasting one-act operas (one written for an all-male cast, and one all-female) are juxtaposed in this thought-provoking and emotive double bill.
 
Performers include singers from both Cape Town Opera and the UCT Opera School.
