This is Bulgarian soprano Sonya Yoncheva’s first visit to Slovenia. Following a series of spectacular debuts at the world’s leading opera houses, she is today one of the most sought-after singers of her generation, internationally acclaimed for performances in some of opera’s most iconic roles. The winner of numerous music competitions, including Plácido Domingo’s Operalia in 2010, she made her debut with the Berlin Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta the year before last. The possessor of a thrilling voice, she is also known for her charitable activities. Last year, for example, she teamed up with Swiss luxury watchmaker Rolex for a series of concert events designed to raise money for musicians affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Tenor Branko Robinšak, a principal of the Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet Ljubljana, has enjoyed a rich career marked by numerous notable concert performances and operatic roles and appearances in opera houses and concert halls around the world.
