The story of one of the world’s most iconic figures, Nelson Mandela, is brought to the stage in this epic and original musical tribute.

Cape Town Opera’s celebration of Mandela’s life is a spectacular portrait of a man who touched hearts and minds around the world. Presented by a cast of over 30 performers, with three different incarnations of Mandela, the contrasting phases of his journey are recreated through strikingly divergent styles of music including traditional Xhosa choral music, the jazz and jive dancing of the 1950s township music halls, struggle songs of the 1980s and the liberation music of the 1990s.

Mandela Trilogy celebrates the vibrant variety of South African music while dramatizing the defining moments that shaped Mandela’s life. From tribal initiation rites on the banks of the Mbashe River and heady and rebellious jazz-fuelled days in Sophiatown, to incarceration and reflection on Robben Island and finally freedom.
