Description

Cape Town Opera will collaborate with Stellenbosch University’s Music and Drama Departments for the first time on a new production of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen at the US Woordfees, as part of the Naspers Grand Masters series. Following his outstanding CTO debut with Monteverdi’s Orfeo, Erik Dippenaar returns to conduct the period instrument ensemble Camerata Tinta Barocca. A new multilingual script by award-winning writer Wessel Pretorius draws inspiration from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
