Sonya Yoncheva, the celebrated soprano, has signed to Askonas Holt for general management.
Known almost as much for her cancellations as her concerts, Yoncheva has been compared to the very greatest sopranos of all time including Maria Callas. She has an exclusive recording deal with Sony Classical, releasing The Verdi Album earlier this year.
Notable roles are Mimì in Puccini’s La bohème; Imogene in Bellini’s Il pirata; the title role in Bellini’s Norma; Violetta in Verdi’s La traviata; and Desdemona in Otello. She has starred at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Teatro alla Scala Milan, Bayerische Staatsoper, Berlin State Opera, Wiener Staatsoper and the Opéra de Paris.
Askonas Holt chief executive Donagh Collins commented: “What a joy to welcome a singer with the class and style of Sonya Yoncheva to our family of artists here at Askonas Holt.”
