Deborah Voigt is Salome in a concert performance of Richard Strauss's riveting opera. 

"A PERSONAL AND ARTISTIC TRIUMPH!"
[As Salome] Ms. Voigt exuded confidence and won a tumultuous ovation. She sang thrillingly.
The major challenges of this role are vocal, and here was a real Strauss soprano to meet them.
HER PORTRAYAL TOUCHED GREATNESS."
--The New York Times, Oct. 22, 2006   Full review
