The Silver Lake is popular music theatre at its most profound,
combining an extraordinary range of melodrama, satire, fairy-tale,
expressionist psycho-drama and social commentary. The first time
ever to be performed in Africa, The Silver Lake will take you on a
powerful emotional journey. Before the two main characters Olim and
Severin can embark on their final quest, seeking death in the icy
waters of the lake, each must undergo a personal voyage of
discovery. Right from the very start, when you hear the raw, driving
power of the overture, you will be in no doubt what sort of a piece
this is going to be. It's acid tinged, on the edge of its seat,
right the way through.
'Seductive', 'Sensuous', 'Sexy'. This unique English version of
Carmen is set in the late 20th century and presented to you in an
idyllic setting under the African skies at Spier. Debuting Pauline
Malefane from Cape Town in the title role, the world's best known
opera with it's stirring music and popular arias like
"Habanera" and "Toreador Song" will captivate
people from all walks of life. Filled with lust, jealousy, dancing
and bull fighting, this promises to be one of the most memorable and
exciting experiences ever.
