Deborah Voigt To Be Represented By Promethean Artists

By Francisco Salazar

American soprano Deborah Voigt has changed management and will now be represented by San Francisco’s Promethean Artists.

The soprano, who was previously represented by Columbia Artist Management (CAMI) changed management to reflect what she considers a return to her roots, as she moves from an opera-centered repertoire to the music that first inspired her to choose the life of a singer.

In a press release, Voigt said, “I am so excited to be opening this new chapter in my career and to be navigating the journey with a new management team that is fully behind my vision for the future. I have been blessed for nearly three decades to sing the greatest operatic roles on the world’s most important opera stages. But I have reached a time in my life and career when I want to focus more of my creativity and energy on the music that drew me into singing in the first place, including the gospel music I have sung at church since I was a child and more of the music of Broadway..”

She added, “I want to continue to perform American standards, which I have always included in my recitals, but I also want to perform the popular songs and music from the musical theater from our own times. Simply put, I want to program and perform more of the music I most love and want to sing, from those Karen Carpenter songs I fell so madly in love with as a teenager, to the Sondheim standards I adore, to music by some of the extraordinary singer-songwriters of today.”

Adam Cavagnaro, President and Founder of Promethean Artists, also noted, “We are thrilled to welcome such a distinguished and accomplished artist as Ms. Voigt to the Promethean roster! In addition to being one of the most celebrated Wagnerian sopranos of our time, she is an icon in the global operatic community and her contributions to the art form, both on the leading stages of the world and on screen as a featured host on the Met’s ‘Live in HD’ program, have inspired generations of audiences and artists alike. Promethean Artists looks forward to working with Ms. Voigt as she enters this new exciting stage of her career.”

Voigt’s last operatic role was Hanna Glawari in “The Merry Widow” at the Michigan Opera Theatre in 2015. Her last performance at the Metropolitan Opera was in “Wozzeck” alongside Thomas Hampson in 2014.
