Washington National Opera: American Opera Initiative

“Bright-toned, vividly expressive soprano Amanda Palmeiro excelled as Marina.” - Opera News

“The major discovery of the evening was the WNO debut of soprano Amanda Palmeiro, a member of the WNO chorus since 2016, who possesses a beautiful top range and a sweet pianissimo tone, among many assets.” - Washington Classical Review

Relapse got off to a promising start with an aria sung by Amanda Palmeiro, which plumbed the loneliness of addiction and the possibility of an overdose event as catalyst for recovery. Composer Molly Joyce created a palette of jangling sounds that seemed to resonate with and augment the competing sounds in the young addict’s head.  The moments where librettist and composer steeled themselves to use repetition of the names of the two sisters, addict and family member, were most satisfying, as music was allowed to carry all their pent up frustrations and longings.  Nowakowski and Palmeiro rise to the vocal challenge.” - DC Theatre Scene

Janiec Opera Company: Street Scene

“Several threads of serious drama intertwine in the plot, and the most serious moments invoke the most conventionally operatic. Giacomo Puccini (or perhaps Rugierro Leoncavallo on one of his better days) could have written "Somehow I Never Could Believe," the show-stopping first-act soprano aria…Notable among the singers, in no particular order, [was] dramatic soprano Amanda Palmeiro (Anna Maurrant)…” - Classical Voice of North Carolina


Washington Concert Opera: Guntram

“Amanda Palmeiro (Poor Woman) revealed a vibrant, steady mezzo.” - Opera News

“Mezzo-soprano Amanda Palmeiro sang gloriously as eine Alte Frau, delivering 'Meiner jungen Söhne frühes Grab' in Act One with great feeling and a stream of plush tone.” - Voix des Arts
