Fall HD Insights – 
Norma & Zauberflote 

Join singer and instructor Deborah Rosengaus for insights into two of the Met Operas Fall productions; Bellini’s Norma (9/28) with it’s extraordinary fusion of sublime melody, vocal challenge, and dramatic power. It examines an ageless and archetypal situation: a powerful woman compromises her ideals for love, only to find herself betrayed by her lover. Also, Mozart’s Die Zauberflote (10/12) Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden, Vienna, 1791. A sublime fairy tale that moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism.

Deborah Rosengaus, is a versatile mezzo-soprano having studied opera, theater, music and dance and is known for her exciting, high energy performances and for creating memorable and endearing characters. With a uniquely flexible voice, as comfortable in Verdi as it is in Rossini, she has delighted audiences around the world with her rich timbre and sparkling coloratura. Ms. Rosengaus holds a Master of Music Degree from the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with international opera diva Mignon Dunn, and a Bachelor’s from the University Of Southern California Thornton School Of Music.
