From November 30 to December 15, Sonya Yoncheva will return to the role of Imogene in Il pirata in six performances of Bellini’s masterpiece at the Teatro Real of Madrid conducted by Maurizio Benini. In the same Emilio Sagi production, Sonya made her role debut as Imogene last year in highly praised performances at the Teatro alla Scala, that according to Bachtrack would “surely see Yoncheva enter La Scala’s hall of fame alongside Callas”.

Sonya Yoncheva is back on stage! Before reprising the role of Imogene in Il pirata at the Teatro Real of Madrid on November 30, Sonya will embark on a series of Puccini Gala Concerts leading her to Hamburg, Moscow and Sofia. The November 9 concert at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg will see her perform alongside tenor Marin Yonchev and with the Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie conducted by Boian Videnoff. Marin Yonchev will also be the tenor soloist of the gala concert on November 13 at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall of Moscow with the Svetlanov Symphony Orchestra led by Diego Matheuz. Completing the concert series, the superstar soprano will appear at the Bulgaria Hall of Sofia on November 15 with tenor Michail Nikolaev Mihaylov and the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Nayden Todorov. The concerts in Hamburg and Sofia are sold out. Details about the concerts:
Sonya Yoncheva is expecting her second child in fall and will therefore not be performing until November 2019. Sonya will be back on stage first for Puccini gala concerts at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg (November 9), the Tchaikovsky Hall Moscow (November 13) and the Bulgaria Hall Sofia (November 15). Following this series of concerts, the star soprano will appear as Imogene in six performances of Il pirata at the Teatro Real of Madrid from November 30 to December 15, 2019.
