Description

In 2005, William Kentridge’s production of The Magic Flute premiered at La Monnaie in Brussels. It went on to venues in France, Italy, Israel and the United States to critical acclaim. In September 2007 it opened in Cape Town and Johannesburg. These performances in South Africa will be the culmination of a remarkable artistic journey that included the creation of the opera, an outpouring of drawings and prints on themes related to the production, and the completion of a seminal project, commissioned by Deutsche Guggenheim, called Black Box, that was unveiled in Berlin in 2006 before moving to the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

William Kentridge Flute traces the process of Kentridge’s creation of The Magic Flute, his astounding collaborations that produced Black Box, and the host of other works that flowed out of preparations for these two important productions. The book, edited by Bronwyn Law-Viljoen, contains an interview with the artist, essays by Bronwyn Law-Viljoen, Stéphane Roussel and Kate McCrickard, gorgeous full-colour photographs of the productions, pages from Kentridge’s preparatory notebooks, and images of the many prints and drawings executed while Kentridge was working on the opera and Black Box.
