NOTES

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 this 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!

The new year is quickly approaching, and it kicks off with two exciting role debuts. First, I'll join my hometown company Lyric Opera of Chicago for their production of The Passenger -- my family will be so happy to hear me singing in Polish!

Then I'll return to Frankfurt, a city that has become a musical second home over the past few years, to sing my first Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier.

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!

REVIEWS

Rave reviews for Amanda's Metropolitan Opera debut as Countess in Le nozze di Figaro

Ms. Majeski’s voice is ample and expressive... She sang with nuance and taste, and made a vulnerable Countess.
— The New York Times
The Countess is sung by Amanda Majeski, whose large, overtone-rich voice captures the character’s grand and refined ardor. Majeski sang with a blend of accuracy and intensity that justly brought the house down.
— The New Yorker
When Majeski sings her tour de force of wistfulness, 3,800 people can feel as if the Countess were unburdening herself only to them.
— New York Magazine
 

NEXT ON STAGE

Music of beauty and enormity…it is a perfect masterpiece…it is a hymn to humanity…to the international solidarity of those who, subjected to the most terrible evil, stood up against fascism.
— Dmitri Shostakovich

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.
