In a celebratory post on her Instagram page, Thevathasan said that it was “an incredible honour to represent Singapore” in the competition and thanked accompanist Rhiannon Pritchard for her “true brilliance” on the piano as they performed eight minutes of a piece by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky.

Thevathasan beat out Welsh soprano Manon Ogwen Parry for the top prize and later thanked her, saying: “You’re an absolute star and I am so, so happy to have a new friend in you. Thank you for making this whole experience so encouraging and enjoyable!”

As reported by the publication North Wales Live, Thevathasan received a solid silver salver and a £3,000 (S$5,180) cheque for her win.
