Sondra Radvanovsky Benefit Recital for UBC Opera

Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky is a globally-celebrated artist. She is widely regarded as one of the premiere Verdi sopranos alive today, as well as one of the premiere interpreters of bel canto. This season at the Metropolitan Opera, Radvanovsky sang the title roles in Tosca and Aida. In 2018, Radvanovsky triumphantly made her claim to be the Norma of her generation when she opened the New York Metropolitan Opera’s season with a new production of the Bellini masterpiece. In 2015–2016, in a feat never before undertaken by any singer in Met history, Radvanovsky sang the title roles in Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda and the role of Queen Elizabeth in Roberto Devereux. The triple crown showcased her acting abilities and her vocal finesse in vastly different parts. The New York Times described her conquest of Queen Elizabeth as “an emotionally vulnerable and vocally daring performance, a milestone in the career of an essential artist.”
