Scottish Opera

"...the show was very nearly stolen by Sofia Troncoso’s Papagena."

Opera Magazine (July 2019)

"The women also give the strongest vocal performances of this cast... Sofia Troncoso delightful in her late cameo as Papagena."

The Herald Scotland (May 2019)

"Sofia Troncoso’s delightful soprano is worth waiting for as Papagena."

The Times (May 2019)

"Finally, Sofia Troncoso made a comic Papagena, transforming from a rotund Mrs Tiggywinkle outfit to a beautiful soulmate for Papageno, surrounded by steampunk prams with tartan blankets for the emerging “papageni”."
