Baroque Opera Gala Concert

Apr 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm


The Cape Town Baroque Orchestra, South Africa’s leading period instrument orchestra, presents an exciting programme of vocal music from some of the most popular 18th century operas, celebrating the virtuosity and broad range of expressions that caused singers of the Baroque period to reach the same level of celebrity as modern-day sport stars.

This programme features a stellar line-up of some of South Africa’s leading Baroque singers: Lynelle Kenned (soprano), Hlengiwe Mkhwanazi (soprano), Brittany Smith (soprano), Jason Atherton (tenor) and William Berger (baritone).

The concert includes music by Handel, Rameau, Pergolesi and Purcell, and will be presented in the spectacular late 18th century setting of the Slave Church Museum in Long Street, Cape Town.

The programme will be directed from the harpsichord by the CTBO’s Artistic Director, Erik Dippenaar.
