"If there is a more compelling solo performance on the operatic stage this year than Amanda Majeski’s in the title role of Janacek’s opera, I will need a new stock of superlatives." 

The Times

"It would not be easy to find the role better sung, warm, sensitive, always projecting over the orchestra and, most importantly, glowing with lyrical beauty."

Financial Times

"She’s an artist of the highest calibre, with a glorious voice, ample, opulent in tone and wonderfully expressive over a wide dynamic range."
