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

I have a 2015-2016 season full of gorgeous repertoire – Strauss, Mozart, and even some Wagner – at some of my favorite houses. I'm a very lucky soprano! 

We are opening the season with Le nozze di Figaro here at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, my home opera house. It's such a luxury to be able to sleep in my own bed and make art with fantastic colleagues every day! 

I'll also revisit the Countess this season in Spain, where I'll make my debut in Oviedo, and in my return to the Metropolitan Opera. If you missed our Figaro Live in HD broadcast in cinemas last season, it's now also available via Met Opera on Demand!

The rest of the season promises to be just as exciting – Der Rosenkavalier at the Lyric, Capriccio at Santa Fe Opera, and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg at the Glyndebourne Festival. 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!



Le nozze di Figaro has just opened the season at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and reviews are coming in!

His adoring, long-suffering, elegant wife, Countess Almaviva, is Illinois-born soprano Amanda Majeski, who [contributes] some of the opera’s most moving moments and most exquisite singing.
— Chicago Sun-Times
Luca Pisaroni and Amanda Majeski are both fine Mozarteans... Majeski sings with her customary poise, her creamy soprano blending beautifully with that of German soprano Christiane Karg.
— Chicago Tribune
Amanda Majeski sang ‘Porgi amor’ with delicate but resonant pathos and fluid evenness across registers.

Amanda spent a night on the town with Opera News for their new "Out Late" feature – read about her adventures in the March 2015 issue.



Amanda is featured in the Chicago Sun-Times Best of 2014: Classical Music and Opera list! "Joyce DiDonato and Amanda Majeski shook the rafters and our psyches in Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito..."



Amanda's season opens with a return to the role where she made her surprise lead role debut at the Lyric Opera of Chicago in 2010.  She will sing the Countess in a new Barbara Gaines production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro alongside Luca Pisaroni as the Count, Christiane Karg as Susanna, Adam Plachetka as Figaro, and Rachel Frenkel as Cherubino. Henrik Nánási conducts Mozart's masterpiece of mistaken identities, morals, and manners.
