"A warm rich powerful mezzo...a force of nature, a majestic sound and presence"

Roberta Zlokower | On The Arts

"Deep, transparent understanding of the music, communicated with rare directness."

George Grella | NY Classical Review

"A rich, molten voice that surges from below, like a magic magma..."

Lawrence Cosentino | CityPulse

"EXCELLENT"

Anthony Tommasini | NYTimes

"Bottoms as Olga...gives an altogether captivating performance vocally and dramatically."

Lew Whittington | Huffington Post

"In the “Dance of Terror,” Bottoms flung astonishing streamers of trans-verbal, bone-chilling melismas...evoking a drunken but lucid madness, a scary but beautiful crack in reality."

Lawrence Cosentino | CityPulse

"A sultry Carmen. Her warm Amaretto mezzo made the “Habanera” the sexy moment it should be...She was as Carmen should be, sleek, stalking and deadly as a rattlesnake."

Nino Pantano | Brooklyn Discovery

"A showstopper, dramatic and full of pizzazz...with confidence & charm."

Judy Pantano | Brooklyn Discovery

"Mezzo-soprano Amanda Lynn Bottoms, pushed a ravishing performance of music by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla into the red zone."
