Deborah Voigt in the news again

A couple weeks ago I wrote a blog entry about Deborah Voigt’s gastric bypass surgery. Well it appears this dramatic weight loss has led the singer to add a new role to her repertoire ... Tosca! This past weekend she debuted in the role at, where else, the Metropolitan Opera.

In a review from the New York Times, reviewer Anthony Tommasini said, “Ms. Voigt gave an involving, impetuous and vocally burnished portrayal.” Other comments include, “Her bright and penetrating sound recalls Birgit Nilsson’s Tosca.” and “...she brought undeniable vocal charisma to the role and some tender personal touches.”

Want to read more about her performance? Check on the full review at New York Times.
