Through her stage performances and television appearances, Deborah Voigt is known for the singular power and beauty of her voice. A leading dramatic soprano, she has portrayed some of the iconic heroines in German and Italian opera to great acclaim, including Brünnhilde in Wagner’s Ring Cycle, perhaps the most challenging role in all music. An active recitalist and performer of Broadway standards and popular songs, Voigt has an extensive discography and has given many enthusiastically received master classes. Increasingly active as a host of radio programs, she also appears regularly, as both performer and host, in the Metropolitan Opera’s The Met: Live in HD series, which is transmitted live to movie theaters across the United States and overseas.
Praised by the Associated Press for “a stage presence that radiates an endearing charm,” Voigt has been described by the New York Times as “the only diva who might carry on Beverly Sills’ role as ‘opera cheerleader’ in America.” In her candid and soul-bearing memoir, Call Me Debbie: True Confessions of a Down-to-Earth Diva (Harper; on sale January 27, 2015), Voigt for the first time shares her story—of music and faith, of devastating addictions and recovery, and of the backstage dramas behind the glamorous curtain that is opera.
