Vocalists — Soprano

"Amanda Echalaz’s impassioned soprano makes something exceptionally vivid out of Lucia, the dinner party’s hostess." —George Hall, The Stage - 'Exterminating Angel' at Covent Garden

"... The young lady everyone is talking about - Amanda Echalaz. Her Tosca at Holland Park wowed even my most hardened colleagues, but this Tosca (Royal Opera House) on the very stage Callas once trod was blessed with with a temperament and a completeness that was world class. It's rare to find a voice of such true spinto colour, dark plangent with a stonking top... exceptional talent." —Edward Seckerson, The Independent - 'Tosca' at Covent Garden

"On Thursday, the cast was led by the South African soprano Amanda Echalaz, who made her house debut in the title role after leaving her mark on European stages, including those of the Royal Opera House in London, La Monnaie in Brussels and the Berlin State Opera. Elegant and slender — Pinkerton scoops her up effortlessly in his arm to carry her over the threshold on their wedding night — with a clear-flowing, nimble voice across the range, she gave a performance that was deservedly well received by the audience." —Corinna da Fonesca-Wollheim, New York Times - 'Madama Butterfly' at the Met
