Sonya Scarlet (born 2 April 1980) is the singer and lyricist of the Italian extreme gothic metal band Theatres des Vampires.[1]


Sonya studied ballet at the Santa Cecilia Academy from the age of 4, later deciding to study opera singing at the academy.[2] She joined the band as a backing vocalist with Justine in 1999, but Justine left in 2002.[3] In late 2004 Lord Vampyr left the band and Sonya became the sole vocalist of the band.[4] She was one of the songwriters for the band on the album Desire Of Damnation. In 2008 Sonya suffered a breakdown, which led to a hiatus in the band's career. Scarlet has an original appearance which often draws fans to their live shows, but appearances are often controversial in the countries in which she plays.[5]
