Sonya returns to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden after her highly acclaimed portrayals of Norma and Antonia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann in the 2016/17 season. She made her Covent Garden debut in 2013 as Musetta in the previous John Copley staging of La bohème.
In this Richard Jones production which premiered in the 2017/18 season, she will sing under the baton of Emmanuel Villaume, and with Charles Castronovo, Andrzej Filonczyk, Aida Garifullina and Gyula Nagy in the other main roles. There will be six performances on January 14, 17, 20, 23 and 29, 2019.
