African Angels

BACKGROUND

African Angels was created as a new South African-themed musical show. Eighteen of South Africa’s finest chorus singers perform an inspiring and uplifting concert of traditional African songs, American gospel and opera classics that will have you dancing in the aisles.

Following over 100 performances in Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Germany, South Africa, Sweden and Switzerland, a fantastic new programme of Cape Town Opera’s acclaimed African Angels will premier in Cape Town and return to the Netherlands in December 2016. This vibrant show is directed and choreographed by Jacky Job with musical direction by Jose Dias.
Audiences can enjoy Wagner’s rousing Pilgrims Chorus, Mascagni’s Intermezzo, and classics from Show Boat as well as African Traditionals and South African favorites which include music by Miriam Makeba and Brenda Fassie.
