Über 2 Jahre arbeitete das Team der Momentbühne München und Vox Vitae auf die Aufführungen der ersten Oper Namibias in Windhoek hin. Durch Höhen und Tiefen hindurch sind wir sehr stolz, die Uraufführung gemeistert zu haben. Auf dieser Seite finden Sie Eindrücke und Stimmen zu dem Erlebten in Namibia.
Eindrücke einer langen Reise
Stephan Frucht, Artistic Director of the Siemens Arts Program
Young talents need knowledgeable partners who believe in them. The bilingual approach of the Opera Namibia project and the musical diversity of the opera Chief Hijangua really won us over. Convincing, too, are the courage and dynamic drive of this young team to mount such a unique project across national borders. Add to this their novel re-thinking of opera in a completely different way, and it all together truly merits our respect and support. This opera is intended not only to open a window into the country’s dark history, but also to promote understanding between the two nations of Namibia and Germany. We believe wholeheartedly that projects like this empower the younger generation of Namibians and Germans to build new bridges – for sharing ideas and cultures, and creating a shared future for both countries.
"YAMWE is behind the costume design of the Opera Namibia project. They have worked with various stylists and productions in the Namibiancreative industry.."
"The unfolding of the project has been an exciting journey and I am honoured to be a part of it - the future of the Namibian music industry looks bright!"
“Curiosity. Collaboration. Camaraderie. ‘Chief Hijangua’ has offered me a unique opportunity to explore together with fellow artists to create this significant work that is testament to a personal and collective experience.”

“Behind the premiere are people full of creativity, conviction and courage who have developed “Chief Hijangua” as a cooperative international team and who, thanks to diverse support, are able to present the opera to you today.”
