Classic Arts News   Photo Journal: Deborah Voigt in Tosca at the Met
Soprano Deborah Voigt sang the title role of Puccini's Tosca at the Metropolitan Opera for the first time on April 22.

Voigt first sang the role at Florida Grand Opera in 2001; she also performed it earlier this year at the Vienna State Opera, and will sing it in concert with the Minnesota Orchestra next month.

The Met production also stars Franco Farina, stepping in for the ailing Marcello Giordani, as Mario Cavaradossi and James Morris as Scarpia; Carlo Rizzi is the conductor. The production is by Franco Zeffirelli, with costumes by Peter H. Hall; Paula Williams is the stage director.

Voigt appears in Tosca at the Met through May 11. Aprile Millo sings the title role on May 16.
