NOTES

Welcome to AmandaMajeski.com! I'm so glad you've joined me here.

2013-2014 was a wonderful season, and I'm happy to have finished it up in Frankfurt, a city that has become a musical second home over the past few years.

 

The upcoming season promises to be full of adventures -- I'm always excited to return to my hometown company Lyric Opera of Chicago, and am thrilled to be making my Metropolitan Opera debut this fall.

If you're not in the New York area, I hope you'll join us for the Live in HD Le nozze di Figaro in cinemas all over the U.S. and Canada!

To help me stay connected while I'm on the road, I'm entering the world of social media -- I'd love you to connect via the icons below.

Wishing you a wonderful season of rejuvenation and inspiration!
