Mezzo-soprano
Heralded for her “superb vocal and dramatic chops” by Opera News, with “stunning vocal beauty and absolute sincerity of expression” in Chicago Classical Review, mezzo-soprano Amanda Lynn Bottoms will return to the Santa Fe Opera this summer to cover Carmen followed by her mainstage debut with LA Opera as the Mother in Omar and Mahler Symphony No. 3 with the Akron Symphony. For the 2022/2023 season, she will also star as Charlie Tyler in the Dayton Opera world premiere of Finding Wright, debut as Leocasta in Giustino with Long Beach Opera and Girlfriend #3 in Blue at Pittsburgh Opera, and perform Third Lady (Magic Flute) with the Buffalo Philharmonic. A beloved guest artist with the New York Festival of Song led by Steven Blier, Bottoms will collaborate with the institution for several performances, including their return to live performance “And…We’re Back”

Praised by the New York Times as “commanding with captivating texture”, and Opera News for “luxurious full tone and interpretive intensity”, Bottoms was a featured Apprentice Artist in 2021 with Santa Fe Opera covering Hermia in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Fillipyevna in Eugene Onegin, Ino in The Lord of Cries, and singing Carmen in the Santa Fe Opera Apprentice Showcase. To much acclaim, Bottoms headlined the Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago Fall 2021 recital series – the opening performance, Songs of the New World, was named one of Chicago Classical Review’s ‘Best of 2021’ alongside the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the final recital The Songs We Carried, received honorable mention.
