Sonya Yoncheva is in "radiant form" as Antonia in 'Les Contes d'Hoffmann' at Covent Garden

"Best of all was Sonya Yoncheva, in radiant form as Antonia, her lustrous soprano and keen dramatic instincts contributing to a gripping scene ..." (Bachtrack)

"It is a luxury to have fast-rising soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Antonia, the fragile young singer, a role for which Yoncheva has voice and charisma to spare. When she and Grigolo are going at full throttle, the performance soars." (Financial Times)

"Sonya Yoncheva's silver-voiced beauty as Antonia, the doomed singer ..." (What's On Stage)

"Sonya Yoncheva, often at her best in French music, makes a heartbreaking Antonia." (The Guardian)

"Both Christine Rice’s lusciously sung courtesan Giulietta and Sonya Yoncheva’s grandly vocalised but doomed singer Antonia hold the attention ..." (The Stage)

"Sonya Yoncheva, the girl who must not sing, provides the emotional pay-off: by turns fragile, febrile, always in exquisite voice." (The Independent)

"The star turn came with Sonya Yoncheva’s Antonia, gloriously sung, believably acted." (Beckmesser's Quill)
