C. MONTEVERDI

Orfeo

Award-winning director and designer Jaco Bouwer (Balbesit, Rooiland, and Samsa-Masjien) made his CTO debut in 2016 with the first African production of Monteverdi’s haunting Orpheus opera, the earliest operatic work which has retained a place in the international canon.
Created with collaborators Magdalene Minnaar, Ina Wichterich, Wolf Britz and Bridget Ann Baker, Bouwer’s production traces Orpheus’ descent into darkness as he searches the underworld for his departed wife, Euridice.
