On May 21 and 24, Sonya Yoncheva returns to the Wiener Staatsoper as Tosca, in the historic 1958 Margarethe Wallmann staging and under the musical direction of Maestro Axel Kober. She will share the stage with Piotr Beczała as Cavaradossi and Ambrogio Maestri as Scarpia. The Bulgarian soprano was slated to perform Tosca at the Wiener Staatsoper in March 2020 and earlier this year, but the performances were cancelled due to the lockdowns in Austria. After her sensational role debut as Tosca in a new production at the Metropolitan Opera in the 2017/2018 season, she sang the role of the Roman Diva at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin and is scheduled to reprise it next season at the Opernhaus Zürich.
