Johannes will be performing the lively character of Papageno in Mozart’s late masterpiece.
Following their well-recieved collaboration on Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda in 2015, Matthew Wild and Kamal Khan turn their attention to Mozart’s mysterious and magical late masterpiece. As young prince Tamino undertakes a quest to rescue the Princess Pamina, he learns hard truths about the real world: that evil can appear to be good, that heartbreak and joy can come hand in hand, and that true love will be tested.
The profound clarity of Mozart’s late writing is never more affecting that when performed by beautiful youthful voices. For this production, the best talents of the UCT Opera School perform alongside CTO Studio singer, Johannes Slabbert.
