NOTE FROM AMANDA
Welcome — I'm so glad you've joined me here!
After an exciting 2017/18 season filled with Mozart, Strauss, and Wagner (including a house debut in La clemenza di Tito at Paris Opera, and singing Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte at the Met for the Live in HD broadcast!), I am thrilled to be returning to some of my favorite composers AND expanding my repertoire this coming season with *three* new composers: Janáček, Britten, and Gluck!
My 2018/19 season begins with my first concert with Music of the Baroque in Chicago — I’m a Chicago girl and I’m so excited to be coming home and performing Mozart’s beautiful Requiem. Of course, not before getting some deep dish from Giordano’s!
I will also be performing with two Symphonies this season. First up is Beethoven’s 9 at the iconic Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Symphony, which will also be my first time in Australia, and my 5th continent to sing on! Then, I perform my first Britten’s War Requiem in Denver with the Colorado Symphony (another new city for me)!
This season also features two operatic role and house debuts for me! First up, I’ll be making my debut at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden as the title role in Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová. I’m so excited to “Czech” out that beautiful London scenery! After that, I get to explore some French rep at Oper Stuttgart, singing Iphigénie in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride — a language I don’t often get to sing in!
Don’t worry — my Mozart heroines aren’t going anywhere! I am delighted to be returning to my beloved Santa Fe Opera in the summer of 2019 for another Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, and singing with old and new friends. I can’t wait!
Follow me on social media to see what I’m up to when I'm on the road!
Amanda’s performances with Music of the Baroque in the Mozart Requiem, and as the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos at Santa Fe Opera, earned raves!
