Amanda Forsythe
soprano

Hailed in Europe as “the discovery of the evening” (FINANCIAL TIMES), Amanda Forsythe is now a star of the international opera world. She returns to AF to traverse the lovesick pathos and fire of the baroque opera stage. Concertmaster Olivier Brault and cellist René Schiffer set sparks flying in Vivaldi concertos. This program tours to Europe following the local performances.

“She [Amanda Forsythe] was simply born for this style of music. Handel would have loved her.” – OPERA NEWS
