Sonya Yoncheva Cancels Switzerland Recitals

By Francisco Salazar

Sonya Yoncheva has canceled her upcoming recitals in Switzerland.

The soprano announced on social media that due to illness she would not be able to sing the program.

She stated, “Dear Friends, the recitals in Zurich and Rolle are canceled! I am sorry to inform you that I have a double otitis. My team is working on finding new dates and will inform you very soon about them. Thanks for your understanding. Sonya.”

The soprano recently finished a run of Verdi’s “Luisa Miller,” for which she received rave reviews and also won the Opera News Awards. She also made history becoming the first singer in the Met’s history to headline three HD in one season.

Yoncheva next returns to Philadelphia for a run of Puccini’s “Tosca” alongside Yusif Eyvazov and then continues her Verdi tour. She also makes her role debut as Imogene in “Il Pirata” at the Teatro alla Scala and also returns to the Salzburg Festival for a new production of “L’Incoronazione di Poppea.”
