Performance Today for Tuesday, May 21, 2013

This month, soprano Deborah Voigt has been on stage at the Metropolitan Opera in New York singing the role of Brunhilde in Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle. We asked Voigt what Wagner's music means to her as a singer. Her first answer was "LONG," but her second answer showed how she really feels. "You will constantly discover things in Wagner's music that you didn't hear" the first or even fifth time, she said. "It's just so rich." Deborah Voigt talks about the composer who is about to celebrate his 200th anniversary on Tuesday's Performance Today.
