Welcome — I'm so glad you've joined me here!

I'm still on cloud nine from my 2016/2017 season which included singing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, with conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil, as well as the Countess in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro at WNO.

My 2017/18 season brings me back to places I hold dear and takes me to new places as well, and I'm very excited to share it with you all!

This season I return to the Metropolitan Opera for my house role debut as Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, a role I premiered earlier this year in Omaha. I'm looking forward to revisiting this feisty character in a cast filled with old friends, and you know how I love to sing my Mozartean ladies! The production will be simulcast in cinemas around the world via the Met's Live in HD on March 31.

Speaking of Mozart, I open my season this fall with another Vitellia in La clemenza di Tito at Paris Opera, a house debut for me! Croissants, anyone?

This season also features another role debut for me! I will portray the role of the Composer in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos at Santa Fe Opera. Though it's often performed by mezzos these days, the role was actually premiered by a soprano, and I'm very interested in stepping outside the box to explore a new kind of character I don't normally get to play!

My season continues with two Wagner roles: Eva in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing and Gutrune in Wagner's Götterdämmerung with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, another house debut for me! This performance will also be recorded for release as part of a full Ring Cycle on Naxos Records.

In the spring, I return to my alma mater, the Curtis Institute of Music, to perform a program very dear to my heart: Strauss’ Four Last Songs at Verizon Hall, accompanied by the Curtis Symphony Orchestra and fellow alumna, Karina Canellakis.

See what I'm up to when I'm on the road, and follow me on social media! 



Amanda's house debuts at Paris Opera and Hong Kong Philharmonic earned raves!

Amanda Majeski has the cutting sharpness and the depth of power necessary to portray Vitellia, especially as she handles the register jumps with ease.
— Forum Opera
Vitellia was Amanda Majeski, a soprano with confident high notes supported by a bronzed, solid middle voice. The character is unsympathetic, and Majeski did not try to make Vitellia more reasonable than Mozart and Metastasio did. She portrayed a ruthless, cruel, cunning woman, who only at the end is overwhelmed by shame and remorse, and even then, her first thought is ‘What will people think of me?’ Her ‘Non più di fiori’ stopped the show.
— Bachtrack
The soprano Amanda Majeski succeeds in illustrating Vitellia’s psychological evolution in a credible and sincere way.
— ClassicAgenda Chronique
Amanda Majeski marvelously opens the drama as Vitellia... Her passion enveloped her, her intense high notes reaching all the way down to the depths of her bosom... It would be impossible not to mention the length and richness of her breath. Her farewells to the hope of love and of nuptials established her right to that throne as she slowly spread her bouquet of roses (shattering old Traviata, raising applause long before the orchestra had concluded her final aria).
— Ôlyrix
Like the soprano Amanda Majeski, imperial and sumptuous in the role of the evil Vitellia.
— Atlantico
Amanda Majeski’s Gutrune deserves particular mention. While the role gives few opportunities to show off, the American soprano sang with extraordinary beauty and dignity.
— Interlude


Amanda returns to the Metropolitan Opera for a house role debut as Fiordiligi in Mozart's beloved Così fan tutte, alongside Kelli O'Hara, Christopher Maltman, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka.
