Verdi Opera arias and duets
A true operatic diva, Sonya Yoncheva, brings to each of her roles a naturalness which is impressive in contemporary vocal performances and her dramatic intent stuns music lovers worldwide. It is easy to forget that this born Traviata trained at William Christie’s baroque Jardin des Voix as she is such a dominant figure today on the bel canto stage. The proof lies in no fewer than three roles – and not minor ones either – Tosca, Luisa Miller and Elisabeth de Valois, in 2017-2018 alone. She is making a stop-off in the world of recital tonight for a duet in the company of her young tenor brother with some lavish Verdi gems.
