Sondra Radvanovsky’s Bio
Specializing in 19th-century Italian opera, Radvanovsky has been called one of the leading Verdi sopranos of her generation. Her signature roles include Elvira in Ernani, Leonora in Il Trovatore, Elena in I Vespri Siciliani, Élisabeth in Don Carlos, and the title role in Norma.
In 2016, for the first time in its 132-year history, the Metropolitan Opera mounted the Tudor trilogy starring Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role of Anna Bolena, the first of three “queen” operas by Gaetano Donizetti, Mary, Queen of Scots, in Maria Stuarda and, as Elizabeth I in Roberto Devereux. To sing all three operas in one season is rare. In October, she appears in the Title role of Norma with the Canadian Opera and is being honoured by Opera Canada with the presentation of a Ruby Award.
