Notes & Reviews:

New York Times
An artist on the brink of a major career.

Sonya Yoncheva is one of today's fastest rising young opera stars. The Bulgarian soprano first gained international prominence in 2010 when she won first prize at Plácido Domingo's prestigious Operalia competition. In 2013, Sonya had her Met Opera debut as Gilda in Rigoletto, garnering praise from audiences and critics alike, with the New York Times proclaiming, "She brought lovely stage presence and a sumptuous, penetrating voice to her performance. Ms. Yoncheva has such vocal glamour." Sonya has collaborated with many artists from the opera and pop world including Sting, Plácido Domingo, Elvis Costello and Jonas Kaufmann.

For her debut album, Paris, mon amour, Yoncheva focuses on repertoire from 19th-century Paris as an homage to the "Belle Époque" era. The album features arias from her career-defining roles as well as new additions to her repertoire which she will be performing at some of the world's greatest opera houses throughout the 2014/15 season. Paris, mon amour includes some of the most beautiful and well-known arias from Paris operas like La Traviata and La Bohème along with lesser-known arias from the golden era of French opera music and French operettas by Messager and Lecocq. Sonya Yoncheva will be appearing at The Metropolitan Opera in New York City in November/ December as Mimi in La Bohème and as Violetta in La Traviata in January 2015.

Financial Times, 16th May 2015
Gleaming, virtuoso singing.

Sunday Times, 3rd May 2015
One of the most effortlessly and gorgeously sung accounts of [Sempre libera] I know...her sensual singing of unhackneyed arias by Massenet, Gounod, Messager and Lecocq announces one of the loveliest lyric sopranos before the public today.
