BCGA Welcomes Amanda Woodbury
Soprano Amanda Woodbury is an alumna of the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program. Ms. Woodbury was most recently honored with the second place award and an Audience Choice award in Plácido Domingo's prestigious Operalia competition. Earlier this year, she also won the 2014 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the 2014 Sarah Tucker Study Grant, and both second place and Audience Choice awards at Houston Grand Opera's Eleanor McCollum Competition.
Ms. Woodbury made her LA Opera debut in 2013 as Micaéla in Carmen, with subsequent appearances there as Papagena in Die Zauberflöte. She then made her Cincinnati May Festival debut this year under the baton of James Conlon, singing the Mater Gloriosa in Mahler's 8th Symphony; and this past summer, she performed Donna Anna in Mozart's Don Giovanni with the Merola Opera Program.
This season, Ms. Woodbury is scheduled to perform Carmina Burana with the Lexington Philharmonic, and she will be returning to the Cincinnati May Festival with Maestro Conlon to sing Haydn's Creation. She will also sing the soprano solo in Beethoven's Choral Fantasy with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. Later this fall, she will be joining the roster of the Metropolitan Opera, where she will cover the roles of Antonia and Stella in their production of Les Contes d'Hoffmann.
