Sonya Yoncheva brings her acclaimed recital program Ad una Stella to the Peralada Festival on August 2, 2022. Making her festival debut, Sonya will perform with Malcolm Martineau on the piano. The program of the recital which takes place at the Carmen Church includes pieces by Duparc, Viardot, Chausson, Donizetti, Delibes, Puccini, Martucci, Tosti and Verdi.
Sonya is having a busy summer in Spain, with star turns in a concert with Plácido Domingo at the Teatro Real of Madrid and in the title role of Bellini’s Norma at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in July.
Following this recital, Sonya will be back on stage in September, making an exciting role debut as Rachel in Halévy’s La Juive, followed by the season opening gala of the Bayerische Staatoper in Munich.

Sonya Yoncheva will return to the role of Norma in four performances at the Gran Teatre del Liceu on July 22, 25, 28 and 31.
The shows will be conducted by Domingo Hindoyan and will also feature Teresa Iervolino as Adalgisa, Airam Hernández as Pollione, Marko Mimica as Oroveso, Núria Vilà as Clotilde and Néstor Losán as Flavio. The staging is by Alex Ollé, a co-production with the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, where it premiered in the 2016/17 season.
In this same 2016 premiere, Sonya made her “triumphal role debut” (Diapason) as Bellini’s gallic priestess. She will now reprise it for the first time following her 2016 debut. In February and March 2023, the superstar soprano will perform the part at the Metropolitan Opera.
On July 17, Sonya Yoncheva will appear in a gala concert with Plácido Domingo at the Teatro Real of Madrid. The program of the concert, which will take place within the Universal Music Festival, will include arias, duets and orchestral pieces by Verdi, Giordano, Massenet and Thomas. Maestro Jordi Bernàcer will lead the Orchestra of the Teatro Real.
Since winning the first prize at Plácido Domingo’s Operalia competition in 2010, Sonya has been regularly appearing with the superstar tenor and baritone on many prestigious stages worldwide.
Sonya returns to the Teatro Real following her recent triumph as Stephana in the first ever performances of Giordano’s Siberia at this theatre earlier this year.
