Lyubov Petrova, soprano

Opera News hails Lyubov Petrova as a “soprano of ravishing, changeable beauty, blazing high notes, and magnetic stage presence.” In the 2017–2018 season, she sings her first performances of Freia in Das Rheingold with both the London Philharmonic and the Odense Symphony Orchestra, in addition to returning to the Metropolitan Opera for its productions of Le nozze di Figaro and Così fan tutte. Petrova made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos and has since returned for numerous other roles. Last season, she sang her first performances of Tatyana in Eugene Onegin with Florida Grand Opera, Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and Sofya in Prokofiev’s Semyon Kotko with Vladimir Jurowski conducting the Radio Filharmonisch Orkest at the Concertgebouw.
