Sonya Yoncheva forced to cancel “Lohengrin” at the Staatsoper Berlin

Due to a bronchitis, Sonya Yoncheva is sadly forced to cancel her participation in the new production of Wagner’s Lohengrin, staged by Calixto Bieito and conducted by Matthias Pintscher at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden of Berlin, in which she was supposed to make her role debut as Elsa von Brabant. The soprano has been struggling with the illness for two weeks and was advised by her doctors to wait at least another week from now before singing again. “I was so much looking forward to returning to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden and to making my Wagnerian debut”, says Sonya Yoncheva. “The production will premiere on December 13 as TV broadcast and stream and sadly it just won’t be possible to debut a long role like Elsa with only a week of rehearsals. I therefore have to cancel my participation in the premiere with a very heavy heart.” Sonya Yoncheva and the Staatsoper Unter den Linden are planning to make this role debut possible later during this season. Dates of the production with Sonya Yoncheva as Elsa will be announced as soon as possible.
