“La Gioconda” at Teatro alla Scala

Sonya Yoncheva is forced to cancel her participation as the protagonist of La Gioconda at the Teatro alla Scala due to illness.

The soprano has been fighting a very strong flu for a couple of weeks and is still not in the shape to participate in the rehearsals. Since the premiere is only two weeks away, it is not possible for her to still commit on making her debut in such a demanding role at this point.

“I have been looking so much forward to performing this role at one of my favorite theatres”, says Sonya. “The only consolation now after I withdraw from the performances of La Gioconda is that I will be back at La Scala in October for Fedora and that I will be debuting Gioconda, a role I completely fell in love with in 2024.

“Siberia” at the Teatro Real Madrid

On May 6 and 9, 2022, Sonya Yoncheva will bring Giordano’s rarely performed Verismo opera Siberia to the Teatro Real of Madrid, starring as the female protagonist Stephana. The work will be performed for the very first time in the history of the Teatro Real and will feature Murat Karahan, George Petean, Elena Zilio, Mercedes Gancedo, Alejandro del Cerro, Albert Casals, Tomeu Bibiloni and Fernando Radó in the other roles. Domingo Hindoyan will lead the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro Real. The concerts will be recorded for a future broadcast by Radio Clásica (RNE).

These performances in Florence were recorded and are available on CD and DVD/Blu-Ray on the Dynamic label.

The superstar soprano returns to the Teatro Real following previous star turns in Don Pasquale, Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria, Roméo et Juliette, Il pirata and her recital programme Ad una Stella.
