Amanda Majeski


Vocalists — Soprano

“Vitellia is the dramatic linchpin of "Clemenza," and Majeski, another Ryan Center alum, brings fearless vocalism and feistiness to the royal schemer who seeks to avenge herself on Tito for usurping a throne she believes is rightfully hers. Her technique is equal to the murderous demands of Vitellia's bravura arias, not least the huge vocal leaps and plunges of her great monologue, "Non piu di fiori," which shows the character's remorseful side.” —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, March 6, 2014 - Vitellia in 'La clemenza di Tito' at the Lyric Opera of Chicago

“Amanda Majeski gives a romantic portrait of the Nixie on one hand, but on the other that of a modern woman. Her crystalline voice offers a powerful, almost jugendlich dramatische design, but also capable of warm, lyrical tones in the Song to the Moon.” —Friedeon Rosén, Der Neue Merker, September 10, 2013 - Title role in 'Rusalka' at Oper Frankfurt

“Amanda Majeski’s Countess is dignified and moving; her performance of “Porgi amor” is poised but deeply reflective (as opposed to the sense of borderline-boredom that sometimes overshadows this aria) and a great showcase for her rich, resonant soprano.” —Laura Battle, Financial Times, June 10, 2013 - Countess Almaviva in 'Le nozze di Figaro' at the Glyndebourne Festival
