Sonya Yoncheva to Return to the Met Opera in 2025

By Francisco Salazar

Sona Yoncheva is set to return to the Metropolitan Opera in 2025.

In a statement via social media, the soprano confirmed her return. The post stated, “Sonya Yoncheva was happy to be back at the Metropolitan Opera yesterday listening to “Tosca“ conducted by Domingo Hindoyan. After four great months in the US and beautiful productions of “Fedora” and “Norma”, Sonya is looking forward to returning home to Europe now. At the same time, she can’t wait to be back at the Met in 2025 for an exciting role debut.”

The news comes after Yoncheva canceled the final three performances of “Norma” due to illness. It also comes after the soprano publicly attacked the New York Times for its negative review and then went on to use the controversial phrase “vocal racists.” Following the incident, the soprano announced that her social media accounts would be managed by her team.

Earlier in December, Met General Director Peter Gelb said that the soprano would headline productions of “Un Ballo in Maschera,” “Medea,” and “Pique Dame.”
