Hall became Gilda right before your eyes, her pure and riveting voice sustaining the high notes effortlessly and eliciting repeated applause from the packed house.”

- Robert C. Pollack of the Shoreline Times


“Hall, as Donna Anna, was most memorable in her heartfelt account
of her Act I aria, ‘Or sai chi l'onore.’ ”

- Arlo McKinnon of Opera News


“Amanda Hall as Fiordiligi sang with gutsy power but plenty of inviting warmth: her ‘Come scoglio’ showed she had the chops for the rapid passagework and the enormous range required.”

- Paul Horsley of the Kansas City Independent
