William Kentridge: Waiting for the Sibyl

Edited by Anne McIlleron. Text by William Kentridge.

William Kentridge: Waiting for the Sibyl

A gorgeous rendition in book form of Kentridge’s latest libretto

This volume publishes the libretto of William Kentridge’s (born 1955) chamber opera Waiting for the Sibyl, which was made for the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and first performed there in September 2019. Music for the opera was composed by Nhlanhla Mahlangu and Kyle Shepherd. The images and phrases were projected on variously sized screens in the opera, sometimes in sync with the sung text, sometimes independent of any sung text. In the opera production, the right-hand page generally featured text, and the left-hand page a mixture of drawings and the shadow of a dancer cast onto its surface.

William Kentridge: Waiting for the Sibyl includes more and different drawings than are used in the opera. This book is compiled and published in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, i.e. during a time in which it is not possible to perform the opera live. It is therefore undertaken in anticipation of the time when the opera can be seen in its full form.
