Cape Town Opera ends its 2016 season with the earliest recognized operatic work, Orfeo, at the Artscape Theatre. A team of cutting-edge creatives has collaborated to stage Orpheus’ descent into darkness as he searches the underworld for his departed wife, Euridice.
Award-winning director and designer Jaco Bouwer (Balbesit, Rooiland, and Samsa-Masjien) makes his CTO debut. He is joined by Magdalene Minnaar (Associate Director), Ina Wichterich (Choreography), Bridget Baker (Costume Design) and Wolf Britz (Lighting Design).
Erik Dippenaar leads a cast of singers through Monteverdi’s achingly beautiful score, accompanied by the Camerata Tinta Barocca, a Cape Town-based baroque ensemble consisting of a core of string players with a harpsichord.
Tickets are R150 and R200.
