A Man of Good Hope is based on the book by Jonny Steinberg, the real-life story of Asad who fled from Somalia to South Africa via most of the rest of the continent. It premiered at London’s Young Vic in 2016, and is now playing in rep with another Isango show, SS Mendi: Dancing the Death Drill, at the Royal Opera House’s gorgeously refurbished Linbury Theatre. The double bill feels like a statement of internationalism and diversity, and of opening up the narrow definition of what opera can be.
