Sofia Troncoso, Soprano
Sofia Troncoso, Soprano and Opera Queensland Young Artist, is an accomplished singer in a spectrum of styles ranging from early music to new music. Australian debuts include Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Scalia/Ginsburg with Orchestra Victoria and in concert with Camerata for Musica Viva praised as “impressive on all counts” by Limelight for her “excellent technique but delicate phrasing and breath control, as well as fiendish agility in the higher register.”
Sofia has also sung in concert with RSNO and Xi’an Symphony Orchestra. In the UK, Sofia “…nearly stole the show” (Opera Magazine) as Papagena in The Magic Flute for Scottish Opera, preceded by a “stunning” debut with Longborough Festival Opera as Poppea in L’incoronazione de Poppea. Sofia has played many roles including: Gianetta in Elixir of Love, Adele in Die Fledermaus, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Vixen in Cunning Little Vixen, and Nanetta in Falstaff. Sofia is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, the National Opera Studio in London, and was recently an Emerging Artist for Scottish Opera where she returned as Tytania in a new and postponed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Amongst her numerous successes, Sofia is a former Karaviotis & Salter Prize holder (Les Azuriales), Central City Opera Young Artist, and holds an Exceptional Talent Visa in the UK.
This year, Sofia will debut with Opera Queensland as one of her favourite heroines in the repertoire, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro.
