Tuba player Shaun Williams hides in the fabulous maze of rooms and corridors and ramparts at the Castle of Good Hope. Follow the music of Grieg’s ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ from Peer Gynt. You know you know it!
A collaboration between the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Culture Connect SA. Filmed by David Fanyane.
We took the Castle background plates to Comic Con Cape Town 2023, and invited cosplayers to stand in front of a green screen, capturing themselves – in character – as tourists in Cape Town. It was very much a low budget experiment, but a lot of fun for all concerned.

With what fear or with what pride have these walls been viewed over the centuries? Whether you are a history buff or not, you’ll find a visceral response to the architecture, the history, the battlements, the looming mountain, the entrance tunnel. This is a place designed to inspire emotions.
