The Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition, normally based in Vienna, migrated to Cape Town for its latest edition – not that you would know.
Although the contest was live-streamed, there has been no international coverage, not even of last night’s final round – except on one Dutch-language music site.
The winner was American bass-baritone Nicholas Brownlee.
Second was South African soprano Noluvuyiso Mpofu. Third was American mezzo Raehann Bryce-Davis.
