Praised as "especially winning" (The New York Times) with "a voice destined for super stardom" (Palm Beach Daily), Soprano Monica Yunus thrills audiences in concert, recital, and on the operatic stage. A high-energy performer with an innate devotion to character, she has been commended for her “rich and sensuous voice [that] was utterly captivating” (Charleston City Paper).

During the 2012-13 season, she once again joins The Metropolitan Opera as Yvette in their production of La Rondine, Opera Omaha as Pamina in The Magic F lute, and The Wichita Symphony for concert performances of CarminaBurana. Her summer 2012 season included concerts with Andrea Bocelli in Lajatico, Italy, and with José Carerras at The Zouk Mikael International Festival in Lebanon where The Daily Star wrote, “Carreras and Yunus’ performance gifted the Zouk Mikael International Festival with a wonderful, almost magical conclusion.” During the previous season, she joined The Metropolitan Opera’s new production of The E nchanted Islandand sang Norina in Opera Memphis’ production of Don Pasquale where she “[held] the audience spellbound with her astonishing voice.” (Live from Memphis).

A favorite at The Metropolitan Opera, Ms. Yunus made her critically acclaimed debut as Barbarina in Le Nozze di F igaro, conducted by James Levine, and has since performed with the company in new and standard productions ranging from The E nchanted Islandto Le Comte Ory, to Die Zauberflöte to Manon, and Don Giovanni, to name a few. She can be seen and heard in several HD productions recorded live from The Met and available on DVD: La Rondine, Le Comte Ory, and The E nchanted Island.
