I get the Callas connection but soprano sfogato?  In my book no way.  There is nothing contraltoish or mezzo in this voice. Sondra is a soprano, pure and simple. By definition a soprano sfogato is a contralto or mezzo with an upper extension and not necessarily a term of endearment. More like a soprano with a dark and opaque sound. This is definitely not our Ms Radvanovsky. Her sound is too radiant for that. My opinion.
