Susanna, Le nozze di Figaro, Opera Queensland

As Susanna and Figaro, Sofia Troncoso and Jeremy Kleeman made a handsome couple, energetic and completely believable. The beautiful soprano of Troncoso is solid throughout the range; a perfect voice for this role. Her touching aria, Deh vieni, non tardar,was expertly sung, as were her many trios and ensembles.

Limelight Magazine (July 2021)

Troncoso, as Susanna, gave a lovely, moving rendering of ‘Deh Vieni’

Arts Hub (July 2021)

L'elisir d'amore, Norfolk Into Opera Festival

Sofia Troncoso made an impressive mark as Giannetta: her mezzo has real punch, clarity and brightness and - in common with all the cast - she acted attentively.

Opera Today (August 2019)

Sofia Troncoso evinced vivacity and clarity as Giannetta.

Opera Magazine (October 2019)

The Magic Flute, Scottish Opera

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”.

Bachtrack (May 2019)

The new cast was altogether classier than in 2012...the show was very nearly stolen by Sofia Troncoso’s Papagena.
