Khanyiso Gwenxane -- TENOR

Khanyiso Gwenxane is a 25 year old Tenor who started singing at an early age of 6 years in a school choir, and since then he has never looked back in this art form. He has sung in numerous school competitions and has obtained first position nationally. In 2007 he joined the Isango Portabello Ensemble, touring London's West End with a production of Mozart's "Magic Flute" which won the London Theater Critic's Olivier Award. He then went on to study at the Tshwane University of Technology where he obtained his National Diploma and B-tech degree in Vocal Art Performance (opera) under the vocal guidance of Mr Pierre du Toit.

His roles include that of The First Priest in The Magic Flute under the directorship of Marcus Desando and Don Ottavio from Don Giovanni, under the directorship of Pierre du Toit. His concert repertoire includes The Mozart Requiem, Handel's Messiah, Mendelsohn's Die Lobgesang and the Beethoven Choral Symphony.

Khanyiso is now currently furthering his studies at the SACM at UCT doing his second year Post Graduate Diploma in Opera under the vocal guidance of Ms Hanna Van Niekerk. He sang the lead tenor role in this year's CTO production of Mozart's Don Giovanni.

Riaan Hunter -- Baritone

Riaan started his studies at the SA College of Music in 2004. After finishing his first year he went into the commercial music industry where he has been very successful for the last seven years. His debut album Net Hier By Jou reached 19th place on Musica's Top 20 African Sales. Recently Riaan recorded a tribute to "Ge Korsten" with Jannie Moolman that is a great hit all over South Africa.

He starred in his first musical in 2006 at the age of 20, going on to star in The King and I, The Gondoliers and HMS Pinafore for the Cape Town Gilbert and Sullivan Society. His performance in The Gondoliers earned him a special prize at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in England. He was also nominated for a Cape Amateur Theatre Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his leading role in HMS Pinafore in 2009.

Riaan returned to the Opera school last year to finish his studies and is currently studying with Prof. Virginia Davids. He sang the role of Guglielmo in Mozart's Così fan tutte and tDapertutto in Offenbach's The Tales of Hoffmann. Riaan was the winner of the Schock Singing Ccompetition in 2012.

Dio che
nell'alma infondere
Amor volesti e speme,
Desio nel core accendere
Tu déi di libertà.
Giuriam insiem di vivere
E di morire insieme;
In terra, in ciel congiungere
Ci può la tua bontà.


Oh terror! Al sol vederla io tremo!

Filippo, conducendo Elisabetta, appare in mezzo ai Frati. Rodrigo s'è allontanato da Don Carlo che s'inchina innanzi al Re cupo e sospettoso. Egli cerca di frenar la sua emozione. Elisabetta trasale nel riveder Don Carlo. Il Re e la Regina si avanzano, e vanno verso la cappella ov'é la tomba di Carlo V, dinanzi alla quale Filippo s'inginocchia per un istante a capo scoperto; quindi prosegue il suo cammino colla Regina

di dentro nel mentre passa il Re
Carlo il sommo imperatore
Non è più che muta polve:
Del celeste suo fattore
L'alma altera or trema al piè.


Ei la fe' sua! Sventura!
Io l'ho perduta!

Vien presso a me; più forte il core avrai!

con entusiasmo
Insiem vivremo, e moriremo insieme!


English Libretto or Translation:

God who
alma infuse
Love you wanted and hope,
Desio in the core turn on
You déi of freedom.
Giuriam set to live
And to die together;
On earth, in heaven join
Your goodness can do it.

Come forwards.

Oh terror! Alone to see her I tremble!

Philip, leading Elizabeth, appears in the midst of the Friars. Rodrigo has moved away from Don Carlo who bows before the dark and suspicious King. He tries to stop his emotion. Elisabetta winces in the reveder Don Carlo. The King and Queen advance, and go towards the chapel where is the tomb of Charles V, before which Philip kneels for a moment bare-headed; then he continues his journey with the Queen

from inside while the King passes
Charles the Supreme Emperor
It is no more than mute dust:
Of the heavenly his factor
The alma alters or trembles at the footer.


It's his! Misfortune!
I lost it!

Come to me; the stronger the core you will have!

with enthusiasm
Together we will live, and we will die together!
