South African soprano Noluvuyiso Mpofu has made history by winning the prestigious John Christie Award which is named after the founder of the Glyndebourne Opera Festival.
It was the first time the prize went to a non-British artist. The Port Elizabeth native has a string of achievements under her belt.
Noluvuyiso, who is a UCT graduate is due to join the Glyndebourne autumn tour in the lead role of Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto. Congratulations Vuvu!
