Amber Wagner

American soprano Amber Wagner is a winner of the 2007 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Grand Finals and was featured in the documentary film “The Audition” which opened to audiences nationwide in 2009. The Chicago Tribune said of her 11/12 season triumph in Ariadne auf Naxos, “Amber Wagner's opulent Ariadne was one of the central attractions of the hugely enjoyable revival of the Cox production Lyric presented.” Chosen by OPERA NEWS as one of twenty-five artists poised to break out and become a major force in classical music in the coming decade, Amber Wagner begins the 2012/13 season with a return to the Metropolitan Opera as Amelia in Un Ballo in Maschera conducted by Fabio Luisi. Ms. Wagner will also return to Lyric Opera of Chicago for a “stars of lyric” program featuring excerpts from Cavalleria Rusticana.
