Amanda Majeski | Meet the Artists
Soprano. Countess Almaviva in The Marriage of Figaro.
Amanda was born, raised, and currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
This performance marks her WNO debut.
Amanda has played this role before in several other productions including at The Metropolitan Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago. She’ll return to The Met stage in the 2016/17 season as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni. She has continued her relationship with Lyric audiences in such roles as Vitellia in La clemenza di Tito and Eva in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg.
A notable moment: In 2009, she was preparing for her role as a peasant in the Lyric Opera’s production of The Marriage of Figaro. The day before a performance, Amanda learned that she would be taking over the role of the Countess. With only hours to prepare for the biggest curtain call of her life, Amanda took the stage. And the rest is history.
“Majeski carried herself with great poise and grace as she lofted creamy tone and ravishing pianissimos into the stratosphere” – The Chicago Tribune
