Acclaimed baritone performer, Themba Mvula returns to Theatr Clwyd after his sell-out summer concert with this new opera composed by Robert Fokkens.

Moving backwards and forwards in time, tracing the life of a South African Zulu man (from childhood during the last years of apartheid to studies and unexpected fatherhood in the UK in the early 2000s), ‘Bhekizizwe’ explores questions of identity, race, immigration, parenthood and culture.

A new operatic monodrama by Robert Fokkens and Mkhululi Mabija, directed by Benjamin Davis and designed by Brad Caleb Lee.

‘A young baritone [with] real promise … elegant, assured and commanding’
