Catch it in Umhlanga at the Ster-Kinekor complex in Gateway – at 5pm on Saturday, 2.30pm on Sunday and 5.45pm on Tuesday. Very popular at the 2017 Saltzburg Festival, as well as in New York late last year, William Kentridge’s production of Alban Berg’s opera was a hit at the 2017 Salzburg Festival, and popular late last year in New York.
