Direction

Chief Hijangua is Namibia’s first opera and celebrated its premiere in 2022 at the National Theatre of Namibia as a Namibian-German cooperation project.
The work “Chief Hijangua” elaborates on the common history between Namibia and Germany during the colonial period in a multilingual and intercultural exchange: The opera is sung in Otjiherero – one of Namibia’s languages – and in German. The Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin plays under the direction of the composer.
