The Organ Room Sessions:

Vuvu Mpofu

Vuvu Mpofu performs arias from Rigoletto and I Capuleti e i Montecchi in the historic Glyndebourne Organ Room.

Vuvu Mpofu performs arias from Rigoletto and I Capuleti e i Montecchi in the historic Glyndebourne Organ Room.

In our first video, Vuvu performs Gilda’s lovely aria ‘Caro nome’, which captures the sweetness and innocence of the character. There’s a folk-like simplicity to it, and its form (which essentially embellishes and varies the opening melody endlessly) shows a girl smitten by first love turning the idea of her beloved over endlessly in her mind.

For her second piece, Vuvu has selected ‘Eccomi… O quante volte’ from I Capuleti i Montecchi by Bellini.

Vuvu is accompanied by Ben-San Lau on piano.
