Lindsay Ammann

— Mezzo-Soprano

"Best of all was Azucena, the gypsy protagonist of the story. Lindsay Ammann brought a stunning mezzo and a twisted drama to the role and it was impossible to keep one’s eyes off her whenever she was on stage."
David Sckolnik, The Gazette, July 30, 2018 - Azucena in 'Il trovatore' at Central City Opera

“What a deep, profound voice this young singer has. Barely 30 and slight of build, Ms. Ammann possesses a dark, mysterious, hypnotic instrument whose power has only just begun to build, and it was gratifying to experience its appropriately primal depth in this production.”
Terry Ponick, Digital News, May 5, 2016 - Erda in 'Siegfried' at Washington National Opera

“Lindsay Ammann’s appearance as Erda, Earth Mother, Native American style, brought us lovely, deep, stilling tones. In this environmental reading, her role is crucial, and Ammann weighted it with suitable gravitas.”
Hillary Stroh, Bachtrack, May 1, 2016 - Erda in 'Das Rheingold' at Washington National Opera

“Lindsay Ammann stands out as the witch Ježibaba with a well-focused dramatic mezzo.”
Dirk Aschendorf, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, May 25, 2015 - Ježibaba in 'Rusalka' at Aalto Musiktheater Essen

“Lindsay Ammann with her velvety mezzo leaves nothing to be desired as a witch Ježibaba…”
Pedro Obiera, Opernnetz, May 27, 2015 - Ježibaba in 'Rusalka' at Aalto Musiktheater Essen

“In the first scene Tiihonen was overshadowed by the splendid Brangäne of Lindsay Ammann, a young contralto with a charismatic personality and powerful voice.”
Luis Hernández Merga, El Nuevo Dia, February 25, 2013 - Brangäne in Tristan und Isolde at the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico
