For her debut album, opera’s rising star soprano focuses on repertoire from 19th-century Paris as homage to the Belle Époque era. Featuring arias from her career-defining roles Paris, Mon Amour includes some of the most beautiful and well known arias from Paris operas like La Traviata and La Bohème along with lesser-known arias from the golden era of French opera music and French operettas by Messager and Lecocq.

The Bulgarian soprano first gained international prominence in 2010 when she won first prize at Plácido Domingo's prestigious Operalia competition.

In 2013, Sonya made her Met Opera debut as Gilda in Rigoletto, garnering praise from audiences and critics alike, with the New York Times proclaiming, "She brought lovely stage presence and a sumptuous, penetrating voice to her performance. Ms. Yoncheva has such vocal glamour."

Sonya Yoncheva appeared at The Metropolitan Opera in New York City in November/December as Mimi in La Bohème and as Violetta in La Traviata in January 2015.
