Debra Voigt

A true diva of the operatic world, this acclaimed soprano has captivated audiences for almost two decades now. Back in the early 2000s, Voigt dared to stand out from the stereotypical, fat operatic singers and she decided to lose weight and undergo gastric bypass surgery. She was fired from the Royall Opera House for not fitting into the show’s costume but was rehired after the surgery for the role of Ariadne. She was welcomed back by the public with open arms and her popularity allowed her to tour, singing both opera and pop music. Get ready to be hypnotized for 90 minutes with her dazzling voice. Watch Debra Voigt live, 8PM at the Adrienne Arsht Center, 300 Biscayne Blvd, Miami. 33132.
