Sonya Yoncheva in Vogue

Original production of the Salzburger Festspiele; with thanks to Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam

"Ms. Yoncheva’s Violetta was a creation full of searching details... Yet this was not a performance merely of moments: Ms. Yoncheva’s voice, strong and faintly smoky, ebbs and flows over phrases, scenes and acts... An all-around stirring performance..."
(New York Times)
