NOTE FROM AMANDA
Welcome — I'm so glad you've joined me here!
My 2018/2019 season was quite a whirlwind! I sang all over the world (3 continents!) performing Mozart’s Requiem, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Britten’s War Requiem, Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony and making two operatic role and house debuts abroad: my Royal Opera House-Covent Garden debut as the title role in the Olivier Award-winning production of Káťa Kabanová and Iphigénie in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride at Stuttgart Opera. It was wonderful to then return to a feeling of “home” this summer at my beloved Santa Fe Opera to sing with old friends and new in one of my standard roles: Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte!
My upcoming 2019/2020 season begins in Nuremberg, Germany where I will be singing Strauss’ Vier letzte Lieder with Die Nürnberger Symphoniker! I then travel to my home opera house, Lyric Opera of Chicago, to sing the fiery and misunderstood Donna Elvira in Mozart’s Don Giovanni with an all-star cast and creative team. I am so privileged to then make my New York Philharmonic debut under the baton of Jaap van Zweden, performing Mozart’s Mass in C Minor, and to also perform Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch at the 92nd Street Y, alongside Philippe Sly and Julius Drake.
My season continues with a return to Kát’a at the Rome premiere of Janáček’s Kát’a Kabanová, making my debut at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. I finish my season with an additional debut at the Teatro Real Madrid in the Spanish premiere of Weinberg’s The Passenger, where I will be reprising my role as Marta.
Thank you for your support and encouragement and for visiting my site! Follow me on social media and let me know if you will be in the audience while I sing around the world this season!
Amanda’s performances as the title role in Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová for her Royal Opera House debut earned raves!
