Sondra Radvanovsky Encores Barcelona Audiences

Sondra Radvanovsky encored the Barcelona audience,

On March 24, after the soprano received a massive ovation for her “La Mamma Morta” in Andrea Chenier,” the soprano encored audiences.

Radvanovsky is one of the first sopranos to encore a piece in recent history and in Barcelona. The soprano now joins Piotr Beczala, Rolando Villazon, Juan Diego Florez, and Javier Camarena as a select few to encore audiences after raves.

Radavanovsky was praised for her work by OperaWire noting, “Her characterization was an entirely credible transformation of a naive Tatyana-ish enfante gâtée into a passionate mature woman of resolution and fortitude. Vocally, Radvanovsky was even more impressive and it was difficult to believe that she was singing Maddalena for the first time.”

Radvanosky sings her final Maddalena tonight at the Liceu.
