Resensie-artikel: Deon Opperman en Janine Neethling se Die Skepping—’n Skouspel
Deon Opperman (director and librettist) and Janine Neethling (composer) staged an Afrikaans oratorio called Die Skepping (“The Creation”) in the State Theatre, Pretoria in February 2013. They aimed to produce a work that has “classical integrity” and that remains musically accessible to listeners. The musical language and the commerciality of the production, however, raise questions about the work’s “classic” status.
