Met Stars Live in Concert, our series of concerts livestreamed from extraordinary locations around the globe, continued in February 2021 from the ornate library of Germany’s Schussenried Cloister. Showing off her remarkable artistry across the entire operatic repertory, Sonya Yoncheva offered a program packed with popular soprano arias encompassing more than 250 years of music. The dazzling vocal display, accompanied by pianist Julien Quentin, featured favorite excerpts by Verdi, Puccini, Dvořák, Massenet, and Bizet—as well as a pair of poignant Baroque selections and Édith Piaf’s classic ballad “Hymne à l’amour.” As Yoncheva said at the performance’s close, it was a concert inspired by love and one that she hoped would help unite music lovers throughout the world.
