YARDLEY, PA—Quintana Artist Management has announced the signing of soprano Amber Wagner to its roster for worldwide representation.

"It's an absolute honor to welcome such an extraordinary artist to the QAM family. Amber's thrilling voice and world-class interpretations have been known and appreciated by a global audience for over a decade, and we are humbled by the opportunity to support a career that is destined for legend," said Bob Quintana, founder of Quintana Artist Management.

Wagner is an internationally recognized soprano known primarily for her interpretation of various Wagner, Strauss and Puccini heroines. She has appeared with the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Edinburgh International Festival, Oper Frankfurt, Opera Australia, Vancouver Opera, Opera national de Lorraine, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Minnesota Opera, Washington National Opera, and Savonlinna Opera Festival in roles such as Sieglinde in Die Walküre, the title roles of Turandot and Aida, Senta in Der fliegende Holländer, Leonora in La Forza del Destino, Amelia in Un Ballo in Maschera, Ariadne in Ariadne auf Naxos, and Elisabeth in Tannhäuser.

In 2019, Wagner decided to pause her career and focus on family needs. This somewhat sudden move was an imperative hard stop for Wagner. Quintana explains, "Rather than attempting to juggle priorities and having her work and art impacted by her personal responsibilities, Amber made a definitive decision to put family first and get a plan in place so that she could fully refocus on her performing career at the right time and deftly balance the demands of parenthood and a global audience. That time is now. Sadly, the advent of COVID unintentionally protracted her time away from the stage even longer than originally planned, but Ms. Wagner is actively booking engagements well into seasons several years out, and is—and will remain—fully committed to maintaining a robust performing schedule."

"It is with great joy and expectation that I return to performing," says Wagner. "I eagerly look forward to making beautiful music and experiences on stage, and I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Quintana Artist Management."

QAM also currently represents sopranos Takesha Meshé Kizart-Thomas, Cecilia Violetta López and Melody Moore, tenors Jay Hunter Morris and Marc Sala, and baritone Robert Wesley Mason.
