She also appeared in the title-rôle of Ariadne auf Naxos and as Lady Billows in Britten’s Albert Herring in 1949 before making her début at the Metropolitan Opera as the Heavenly Voice in Verdi’s Don Carlo in November 1950. She would continue at this house until 1991, singing 56 rôles in 882 appearances. Amara sang at Glyndebourne (1954-55, 1957-58), the Edinburgh Festival (1954), the Vienna State Opera (1961), in Russia (1965) and China (1983).
