New operas are often inspired by an intense personal relationship to universal ideas. Benjamin Britten’s Curlew River, based on a Japanese noh play about a mother’s loss of a child and her redemption through spirituality, is paired with a new South African opera about women’s strength through ordeal, composed by Sibusiso Njeza and written by Asanda Chuma Sopotela.
