An afternoon with Sondra Radvanovsky—one of today’s greatest opera stars, and members of the UBC Opera Ensemble.

Sondra Radvanovsky is a globally celebrated artist who is regarded as one of the premiere Verdi sopranos today. The sincerity and intensity she brings to the stage as one of the most prominent sopranos of her generation have won her accolades from critics and loyalty from passionate fans.

The exquisite depth and colour of her voice are matched by her artistry and versatility across a remarkable range of repertoire, including the enormously challenging Norma by Bellini. It is in this role that she will open the 2017/18 Metropolitan Opera Season, making her one of only three sopranos to sing Norma at the Met. In the Met Opera’s 2015/16 season, Ms. Radvanovsky performed all three queens in Donizetti’s “Tudor” operas, the only singer to ever perform all three in one season.

Join Sondra Radvanovsky and members of the UBC Opera Ensemble for an afternoon of music  and conversation followed by a masterclass.

Admission is free, but reservations must be made by calling the UBC Opera Box Office at 604-822-6725.
