Sondra Radvanovsky

Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky is a globally celebrated artist. The depth and exquisite color of her voice are matched by her dramatic acting ability and versatility across a remarkable range of repertoire, from the title roles in Rusalka and Lucrezia Borgia, to Roxanne in Cyrano de Bergerac and the title role in Manon Lescaut. She is widely regarded as one of the premiere Verdi sopranos alive today, as well as one of the premiere interpreters of bel canto.

  • "The moderate tessitura and muted dynamics of much of the music brought out a lovely silvery color in her tone . . . For the “Bastarda” scene, though, the soprano dug into a ferocious chest tone, and then vaulted to a steely high register just this side of a scream. It was an electrifying moment, and I almost expected the Met audience to burst into cheers in mid-scene, the way you can hear the Florence public do in a celebrated “pirate” recording of this opera starring Leyla Gencer.

    Later, in the prison hymn, Ms. Radvanovsky spun out a seemingly endless thread of breath, her high G shimmering like a ray of moonlight through a barred dungeon window. So perfect was her sense of exaltation that at the end of the number the silence hung in the air for a couple of seconds before the audience erupted into a clamor of shouting and foot-stamping."
