Deborah Voigt: Journey in the World of Opera


This exhibition explored the life and career of internationally acclaimed operatic soprano Deborah Voigt. The three-case exhibition featured photographs, programs, awards, costume designs, and correspondence chronicling Ms. Voigt's career in opera.

The exhibition started with material from the beginning of Ms. Voigt's journey with the certificate for winning the gold prize at the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1990 and the proclamation by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino declaring "Deborah Voigt Day" in the city for October 4, 1997.  It also featured letters from composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim and fellow soprano Beverly Sills and photographs of Voigt's most famous roles. The exhibition closed with Voigt's writing, featuring manuscript material from her recently released memoir, Call Me Debbie: True Confessions of a Down-to-Earth Diva.

This exhibition is no longer on view.
