What Is It?
Dr John Kani returns to the Market Theatre stage this November with The Lion and the Lamb Musical. Originally created by himself and co-founder of the Market Theatre Barney Simon.
The Lion and the Lamb tells the story of Jesus the child, Jesus the man and Jesus the Son of God. However, this is the Christ myth told with startling difference. Featuring popular South African gospel music as the backtrack for Kani’s electrifying performance. This allegorical stage masterpiece resonates with audiences of all denominations, cultures and religions. Above all it is about the relationship we as a nation have with the figure of Christ.
For the first time John Kani is directed by Market Theatre artistic director James Ncgobo. Backed by some of South Africa’s best vocal voices including Nokukhanya Dlamini, Gugu Shezi and Nomfundo Dlamini, Lerato Gwebu, Lerato Mvelase, singing sensation, Itumeleng Tshabane and the brilliant guitarist, Avril Mkansi. Don’t miss it!
