STIMIE, Annemie. Deon Opperman and Janine Neethling's Die Skepping - A Spectacle. Tydskr. letterkd. [online]. 2013, vol.50, n.2, pp.160-160. ISSN 2309-9070.
Deon Opperman (director and librettist) and Janine Neethling (composer) staged an Afrikaans oratorio called Die Skepping ("The Creation") in the State Theatre, Pretoria in February 2013. They aimed to produce a work that has "classical integrity" and that remains musically accessible to listeners. The musical language and the commerciality of the production, however, raise questions about the work's "classic" status.
