Call Me Debbie by Deborah Voigt (Paperback)
True Confessions of a Down-to-Earth Diva

Release Date: 1/27/2015

In Call Me Debbie, internationally renowned soprano Deborah Voigt describes her journey to become one of the world's most celebrated artists. In a strikingly unguarded and revelatory memoir, Voigt writes not just about the excitement and glamor of her musical career, but describes—in often harrowing detail—her private battles with addictions to food and alcohol, and a myriad of other self-destructive tendencies that nearly destroyed her, threatening to ruin her professional reputation and personal well-being.

Highlighting hilarious anecdotes and juicy gossip that illuminate what really goes on backstage in an opera house, Voigt talks candidly about the impresarios, singers, and conductors with whom she's worked. She offers fascinating insight into the roles she has played and the characters she loves, including Strauss's Ariadne and Salome, Puccini's Minnie, and Wagner's Sieglinde, Isolde, and Brünnhilde, sharing her inspiration and her preparation for playing them. Call Me Debbie is a heartfelt, inspirational story that offers a unique look into the life of an incredible artist and a remarkable woman, one who overcame terrible demons before she could regain her self-respect and achieve peace. Powerfully honest and utterly compelling, this is a remarkable memoir.
