BAYEDE SHAKA (article first published : 2001-08-25)

Written and directed by Edmund Mhlongo Bayede Shaka - The Spear is Born had a successful run at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre earlier this year. Those who missed it then can now catch it in the Playhouse Opera where it runs from August 30 to September 5. (see review in Music Archives)

Bayede Shaka - The Spear is Born is an energetic musical spectacular celebrating the life of legendary King Shaka, builder of the Zulu kingdom and promoter of African unity. This vibrant and colourful musical spectacular portrays uShaka as a respected and gifted African legend who artistically initiated the very first moves towards a united state of Africa. Set in King Shaka’s royal kraal - Kwa Bulawayo - the show documents the rise and fall of this mighty leader, through music, dance and dramatic action! The show is performed by a 22-strong cast, accompanied by the K-Alive band and drummers.

The show has toured extensively in Europe and the UK and has been featured on BBC, ITV, Danish and Swedish TV. Book at TicketWeb, credit cards (031) 369-9444 or visit www.ticketweb.co.za
