Since 1993, Deborah Riedel has sung in many leading international opera houses including The Metropolitan Opera, New York (Donna Anna), Covent Garden (Mimi, Donna Elvira), Opera National de Paris (Teresa), San Franscisco Opera (Donna Anna), Vienna State Opera (Donna Anna), Netherlands Opera (Violetta in La Traviata) San Diego Opera (Amina in La Sonnambula, Adina in L'Elisir d'Amore, Violetta), Montpellier (Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro), Rome Opera (Teresa), Geneva Opera (Marguerite in Faust), Munich Staatsoper (Donna Anna) and the Aix-en-Provence Festival (Donna Elvira).

"This little record has been in my mind for many years. During my student days in London in the 1950s, I collected many nineteenth century programmes, many piano scores and hordes of songs from popular operas with their illustrated music covers, so the operas of Balfe and Wallace have long been familiar friends. Many of these operas were exceedingly popular in the nineteenth century and were sung by very famous singers." - British Opera Arias: An introduction by Richard Bonynge.
