New Opera Tells Winnie Mandela’s Story
The life of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is a fascinating story. So much so that it’s been turned into an opera, being performed in South Africa.
Tsakane Maswangany, a native of Soweto, will sing Mandela’s story in Soweto. This is what the actress had to say about the play and her role in it.
“It’s something that I grew up knowing. It’s part of my history.”
