NOTE FROM AMANDA
Welcome — I'm so glad you've joined me here!
I'm fresh off a thrilling 2014-2015 season, during which I made my Metropolitan Opera debut in Le nozze di Figaro in the fall. If you weren't in the New York area, I hope you were able to see our PBS Great Performances at the Met episode, or were able to join us for the Live in HD broadcast in cinemas all over the world, now also available via Met Opera on Demand!
This story of survival, perseverance, and love is an amazing and important one to tell, and I feel so lucky to have been a small part of sharing it. You can view the trailer below!
Then I returned to Frankfurt, a city that has become a musical second home over the past few years, to sing my first Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier at Oper Frankfurt. You can sneak a peek at production images here!
To help me stay connected while I'm on the road, I've entered the world of social media – I'd love you to connect via the icons below.
In the meantime, I'm wishing you all a summer full of relaxation and rejuvenation. I can't wait to see what next season will bring!
BEHIND THE SCENES
Amanda's debut run of Der Rosenkavalier featured a Marschallin for whom time is running short. Amanda talked to Oper Frankfurt about her love for the music of Strauss, and how the Marschallin's terminal illness in this production imbued each moment in the opera with deeper meaning.
The 2015-2016 season includes returns to some of Amanda's favorite houses!
Just announced: in the summer of 2016, Amanda will return to the Glyndebourne Festival as Eva in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and to Santa Fe Opera as the Countess in a new production of Capriccio, also featuring Eric Owens and Susan Graham.
Immediately following Der Rosenkavalier, Amanda will return to the Metropolitan Opera for repeat performances of Le nozze di Figaro, alongside Luca Pisaroni, Isabel Leonard, Anita Hartig, and Mikhail Petrenko.
