Most recently Amanda Echalaz sang the title role of Madama Butterfly for Cape Town Opera and returned to Opera Holland Park to sing Amelia in Un ballo in maschera. Sensationally she triumphed at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden when she took over at short notice from an indisposed Angela Gheorghiu in the title role of Tosca, in July 2009.
Her concert repertoire includes Vaughan Williams’ Sea Symphony, the Brahms, Mozart and Verdi Requiems, Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Dvorak’s Stabat Mater, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solenelle, Strauss’ Four Last Songs and Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder. During the 2009/10 season Amanda will sing Liù in Turandot and the title role of Tosca, both at English National Opera. She will also reprise her role in Tosca for the Salzburg Landestheater.
Looking further ahead, Amanda will make her debuts with the Teatro Real in Madrid in Britten’s Turn of the Screw, La Monnaie, Brussels in the title role of Salomé and at the Bregenz Festival, Austria in the role of Maddalena in Andrea Chénier.
