Lindsay Ammann

— Mezzo-Soprano

"Ammann’s Ciesca also stood out for her arresting mezzo and Christine Baranski-style flooziness"
Joanne Sydney Lessner, Opera News, November 23, 2018 - Ciesca in 'Gianni Schicchi' at Metropolitan Opera

"Lindsay Ammann stood out as the Abbess for her burning, taut contralto."
Eric C. Simpson, New York Classical Review, Nov. 27, 2018 - Abbess in 'Suor Angelica' at Metropolitan Opera

"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


With a voice "capable of sinister low chest tones and robust high notes" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and a stage presence that has been called "a force" (Opera News), dramatic mezzo-soprano Lindsay Ammann is rapidly rising as a radiant star in the opera world. Possessing an instrument well-suited for the most dramatic of roles, Ms. Ammann is proving to be a future staple in the works of Verdi and Wagner.
