Soprano Amanda Lauricella is an active performer and voice teacher based in Madison, known for her “penetrating upper range and bold confidence in her vocalism.” Previous roles include Tytania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Gretel in Hansel and Gretel, Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance, Miss Pinkerton in The Old Maid and the Thief, and the Doctor in the world premiere of The Scarlet Professor. Additional projects include the Berlin Opera Academy, Madison Opera Chorus, Berkshire Opera Chorus, Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and Washington Master Chorale.
Ms. Lauricella recently received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Voice Performance with a minor in Theatre and Drama at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she offered a lecture recital on the many musical settings of Hamlet’s Ophelia. This recital presented various psychological interpretations of the character, exploring the motivations for the events surrounding her death through a modern lens, with both mental health and feminism considerations.
She has also recently published a vocal repertoire guide for collegiate voice teachers entitled, “Selecting Solo Literature for the Developing Classical Singer: A Pedagogical Repertoire Guide for Teachers of Voice.” This guide enables voice teachers to appropriately select solo repertoire according to three variables: (1) the student’s voice type (soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, baritone, bass), (2) the desired language of the repertoire (English, Italian, German, French), and (3) the level of technical difficulty.
Ms. Lauricella was the 2021 recipient of the Charles and Helen Loeb Voice Award.Edit my profile
