The Bulgarian soprano, a celebrated Verdian internationally, continues in that repertoire this season with the Requiem (Zagreb) and Un ballo in maschera and Otello (Vienna State Opera, where she was made a “Kammersängerin” in 2009). Among other recent Verdi successes are Aida (Munich, Met, Chicago Symphony Orchestra), Simon Boccanegra (Berlin, La Scala), Don Carlo (Covent Garden, La Scala, Vienna), and Il trovatore (Munich). Recent seasons have also seen triumphs in operas of Donizetti (Lucrezia Borgia, Salzburg); Strauss (Der Rosenkavalier, Salzburg, Vienna, Zurich; Ariadne auf Naxos, Dresden, La Scala; Die Liebe der Danae, Salzburg); and Dvorák (Rusalka, Vienna). Among other rarely performed works in Stoyanova’s repertoire are Gomes’s Il Guarany and Fosca (Sofia), Verdi’s La battaglia di Legnano (New York), and Dvorák’s Dmitry (Vienna). Collaborations with leading conductors have included Riccardo Muti (Chicago, Ravenna), the late Sir Colin Davis (St. Paul’s Cathedral), Mariss Jansons (the Vatican), and Christian Thielemann (Munich).
