Renée Fleming is of course, by any measure, a star...It was a privilege to be present.

The Guardian, London

Recital
Renée Fleming, soprano
Richard Bado, piano

Having conquered the world of opera, in recent years the astonishingly versatile Renée Fleming has appeared on two award-winning film soundtracks and captivated audiences in the acclaimed Broadway revival of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel. Fleming brings the elegance and glamour of the opera house to her intimate—and rare—recital appearances, lending her rich soprano to German art song, operatic arias, Broadway hits, classical masterworks, and new music by gifted contemporary composers. "Her voice floated across the hall in an iridescent display of vocal color.... By the end of the evening, Fleming held her audience in the palm of her hand" (Los Angeles Times).
