"The greatest Violetta since Callas", this is how a German journalist described the presentation of the beautiful Bulgarian soprano Sonya Yoncheva, after a performance of La Traviata at the Berlin Staatsoper. Her career took a meteoric rise in recent years without this being a real surprise for the many people who had already spotted her in the Garden of the Voice of Maestro William Christie. Before conquering the most prestigious venues, Sonya Yoncheva assiduously frequented the Baroque repertoire, which allowed her to lay the foundations for a perfect vocal technique and getting already a taste of the major roles of the operas of Monteverdi, Handel and Rameau. The versatility of her vocal expression is a great chance for opera lovers without borders because she does not neglect the great baroque heroines and adds the great roles of Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Massenet and Gounod in her repertoire. Each role approached is remarkable as her Lucia at the National Opera of Paris and the unforgettable Mimí at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Each occurrence is a pleasure to watch as Sonya Yoncheva is undoubtedly the most exciting soprano of her generation.
