SONYA YONCHEVA FOR THE FIRST TIME AT THE SOFIA OPERA

On 29 February the world-renowned Bulgarian opera singer Sonya Yoncheva will sing for the first time at the Sofia Opera.

She will perform in Giacomo Puccini's "La bohème" as Mimì. This will also be her first appearance in a full performance in Bulgaria.

Mimì is one of Sonya Yoncheva's crowning roles, taking her to the most prestigious stages in the world, such as the Metropolitan Opera, where she made her debut in 2014, the Paris Opera, the Scala in Milan, the Staatsoper Berlin and the Bavarian Opera in Munich. Worldwide critics have described her as "the perfect Mimì" and highlighted her rich timbre, sparkling pitches and perfect acting presence.

Sonya Yoncheva will come to Sofia after a series of recitals and concerts, as well as a performance in Cherubini's "Medea" at the Scala in Milan and "Madama Butterfly" at the Staatsoper Berlin.

In the Sofia Opera performance Sonya will sing under the baton of the young Bulgarian conductor Boyan Videnov, whom the audience already knows from his performance in Giuseppe Verdi's "La Traviata".

The other leading roles will be performed by Liparit Avetisyan as Rodolfo, Veselin Mihaylov as Marcello, Anton Andreev as Schaunard and Bozhidar Bozhilov as Colline.

We are looking forward to Sonya Yoncheva's guest appearance, which will undoubtedly be a great experience for the audience in Sofia.

We are waiting for you!
