Saturday Matinee presents the Metropolitan Opera's production of Berg's Wozzeck.

Deborah Voigt sings the role of Maria, with Simon O'Neill (The Drum-Major), Peter Hoare (The Captain), Thomas Hampson (Wozzeck), Clive Bayley (The Doctor).

"The vocally and dramatically affecting performance of Marie… by the soprano Deborah Voigt… she brought earthy poignancy to the role, especially in Marie's tender moments with her child. When roused to passion and torment, she sent Marie's outbursts soaring with visceral intensity." - New York Times
