Sonya Yoncheva | Press releases
Sonya: I AM GOING... to work. As an operatic soprano, my "office" can be on a stage, in a rehearsal room, filming a video... anywhere around the world! I am currently preparing to perform the role of Antonia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann at the Royal Opera House in London. This production is also being relayed live into cinemas around the world – it’s incredible to think that so many people around the globe will be able to enjoy the performance with us from the theatre here in Covent Garden.

"I'm a very natural person," says Sonya Yoncheva. Anyone who has ever seen the Bulgarian soprano onstage or listened to her recordings might well agree.

She is also a striking beauty, with dark eyes that project to the farthest reaches of the house. But when Yoncheva is in action, you’re aware less of her extraordinary gifts than of her humanity: it’s like you’re catching her in the act of being herself.see more
