Internationally acclaimed soprano Deborah Voigt, a mainstay at many of the world’s most esteemed opera houses and concert halls, opens Miami Summer Music Festival’s electrifying season in a robust orchestral concert alongside the MSMF Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the festival’s artistic and executive director Michael Rossi.
South Florida audiences are treated to Voigt’s signature dramatic soprano with a program of Wagner’s "Dich, Teure Halle" from Tannhauser and "Du bist der Lenz" from Die Walkure, “Zueignung” from Strauss’ sublimely orchestrated Four Last Songs, and more. Voigt is joined by the 2015 MSMF Symphony Orchestra, a 95-piece orchestra comprised of top young talents from the world’s elite music institutions including Juilliard, the Royal College of Music, the Cleveland Institute, and others.
The MSMF Symphony Orchestra then takes on Mahler’s breathtakingly powerful Symphony No. 5. A spectacularly challenging work with musical themes exploring the tomes of light and dark, Karajan has called this masterpiece a “transforming experience.”
Join us the following day for a master class and book signing of Call Me Debbie: True Confessions of a Down-to-Earth Diva with Voigt and select singers from the MSMF Opera Institute. Click here for more information.
