Deborah Voigt Gets Her Gun Ready For Glimmerglass

"Safe to say that Wagner’s Brünnhilde would never brag about shootin’ a wart off’n grandpappy’s nose, despite the warrior that she is. But then maybe she would in an alternative singing universe, the kind Deborah Voigt, the soprano, has entered here at the Glimmerglass Festival. Ms. Voigt, a heralded interpreter of Wagner, Verdi and Strauss heroines, is appearing as the backwoods sharpshooter of the title in Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, which opens Saturday."
