In entertainment news, the Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards celebrate five decades of honouring excellence while the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Cape Town Opera create a joint endowment fund. In more music news, Matthew Wild talks about his love for directing while Charl-Johan Lingenfelder prepares for his role in the Fugard Theatre’s production of Cabaret.
