“It’s all I’ve ever dreamed about,” says Deborah Mayer. “I can’t think of any young, American, soprano who didn’t dream of singing at the Met. Now I can die happy.”
Mayer, a vocal instructor for the Department of Music in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters, will make her debut with the Metropolitan Opera this spring in the role of Gerhilde in Richard Wagner’s opera, Die Walküre; part of the Met’s revival of Wagner’s epic, four-part Ring cycle directed by Robert Lepage, and conducted by Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi.
