Soprano Deborah Voigt Appears “One on 1” with Budd Mishkin on NY1

Interviewed during preparations for the Met Opera’s 125th Anniversary Gala – in which she sang parts of two operas she has not yet performed with her home company (Wagner’s Siegfried and Strauss’s Rosenkavalier) – Deborah Voigt talks informally with NY-1’s Budd Mishkin about her career and personal life. Voigt is also seen at a backstage costume fitting and working with voice students.  Brief shots from several of her famous Met performances are shown, including Isolde, Helen in The Egyptian Helen, and the Met Gala Siegfried. She even gave NY-1 access to photos from her album, so there are photos of the young Debbie in an early stage show and with her family. 

“Voigt’s combination of golden-toned, full-bodied singing and luminous beauty has made her the opera world’s Isolde of choice. … incandescent … she was superb, her gleaming soprano expressive and big, unforced and capable of easily sailing over the orchestra even at its most frenzied moments.”

Chicago Sun-Times

“A truly memorable Tristan und Isolde, with a dynamic cast headed by … Deborah Voigt, one of the world’s most renowned dramatic sopranos. … Voigt climaxes the evening with an achingly beautiful performance of the familiar ‘Liebestod’.”
