About This Performance
Soprano Deborah Voigt performs a program of American songs including works by Amy Beach, William Bolcom, and Leonard Bernstein.
A Chicago native raised in southern California, soprano Deborah Voigt is increasingly recognized as one of the world’s most versatile singers and one of music’s most endearing personalities. A leading dramatic soprano, internationally revered for her performances in the operas of Wagner and Richard Strauss, she has also portrayed some of the heroines of Italian opera to great acclaim. An active recitalist and performer of Broadway standards and popular songs, Voigt has an extensive discography and has given many enthusiastically received masterclasses. She appears regularly, as both performer and host, in the Met’s Live in HD series, which is transmitted live to movie theaters across the U.S. and overseas. Honored in the media with a CBS 60 Minutes profile, features in People and Vanity Fair, spotlights in More and O—the Oprah Magazine, and appearances on Good Morning America, CNN, and the nationwide telecast of the MACY*S Thanksgiving Day Parade and July 4 fireworks celebration, Voigt has become America’s most visible and beloved diva.
