Welcome — I'm so glad you've joined me here!
The 2014-2015 season is in full swing -- I'm thrilled to have 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 join us for the Live in HD broadcast in cinemas all over the world, or were able to see the PBS Great Performances at the Met showing in January 2015!
The new year is quickly approaching, and it kicks off with two exciting role debuts. First, I've joined my hometown company Lyric Opera of Chicago for their production of The Passenger, currently on stage at the Civic Opera House -- my family is so happy to hear me singing in Polish!
This story of survival, perseverance, and love is an amazing and important one to tell, and I feel so lucky to be a small part of sharing it. You can view the trailer below!
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'll be wishing you a wonderful winter of joy, family, and good food!
Amanda's debut as Marta in the riveting production of The Passenger at the Lyric Opera of Chicago is earning raves!
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.

NOW ON STAGE
Suppressed for more than 40 years, Weinberg's gripping opera has emerged anew, electrifying audiences at Austria's Bregenz Festival and again in Warsaw and London. The action moves between two realms — from the pristine white deck of a luxury liner above to the dark horrors of the death camp below.
Guilt and denial, lies and truth, fear and courage, and love — it's all here in an artistic and emotional experience you'll never forget.
The Passenger will be performed in Polish, Czech, Russian, German, French, Yiddish, and English, as envisioned by Pountney for the world premiere in Bregenz, and is a co-production of Bregenzer Festspiele in Austria, Teatr Wielki Opera Narodowa in Warsaw, English National Opera in London, and Teatro Real in Madrid.
