Die Vertrek is a small-scale opera inspired by both real life events and the poem “Death is Nothing at All” by Henry Scott Holland. A mother finds herself shortly after her death in a magical invisible room from where she tries to make contact with her grieving daughter on earth. The story is told by song, dance, music and enchanting visual design.

Die Vertrek is written, directed and designed by MarĂ­ Borstlap, music by Wilken Calitz and features Magdalene Minnaar (Soprano) and Jane DeWet (actress).
