Amanda Crider the "true star" in the world premiere of "Greek" at Boston Lyric O

"Mezzo-soprano Amanda Crider, in her BLO debut, spiked her voice with a steely edge as the Waitress who becomes Eddy’s wife. However, the best moment for both women arrived when they oozed together in a grotesque burlesque, playing a kinky, two-headed Sphinx that Eddy vanquishes near the end."- The Boston Globe

"Mezzo-soprano Crider is the true star here, making her BLO debut, particularly in a sex-charged fever dream by Eddy where she crawls around and on top of him in a violent lust, accenting her notes as if she were pinning Eddy down with them." -Boston University News Service Read full review. "Mezzo-soprano Amanda Crider sang Eddy’s Sister, Waitress/Eddy’s Wife, and the other half of the Sphinx. As Sister, she is little more than a third of the familial chorus; the transition from Waitress to Wife happens with the suddenness of simulated copulation at first sight. As Sphinx she joins Worra in sexy as imagined by Marks & Spencer. . . As for Crider, the performance was strong but the roles are utterly enigmatic, seemingly constrained to two-dimensions despite the performer." -Boston Musical Intelligencer Read full review.
