Since winning the Belvedere Singing Competition in 2015, Sekgapane has rapidly become one of the world’s most sought-after young Rossini tenors, triumphing in high-flying bravura roles in major opera houses including Munich, Copenhagen and Rome.
Two other Belvedere winning South African singers, soprano Noluvuyiso Mpofu and baritone Mandla Mndebele, star alongside Sekgapane, supported by an impressive roster of local singers (including Violina Anguelov) and the Cape Town Opera Chorus.
Drawing inspiration from two of Sekgapane’s most admired roles, Count Almaviva in The Barber of Seville and Prince Ramiro in La Cenerentola, the Gala will feature a sparkling programme of arias, duets and ensembles from operas by Mozart, Rossini, Massenet and Richard Strauss.
Cape Town Opera’s Associate Music Director Tim Murray conducts the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in this not-to-be-missed highlight of Cape Town Opera’s 2017 season.
This concert will support the fundraising efforts of The Duet Endowment Trust.
