Fleming shines at Boca Raton's Festival of the Arts

"As perhaps the best-known star in opera today, Renée Fleming could probably coast on her looks, voice and rapport with audiences... But the American soprano presented a varied and challenging program that, while including a few standards, offered less frequently heard works by Strauss, as well as outright rarities by Leoncavallo and Mascagni... Fleming was ably backed by the Russian National Orchestra, among the most highly regarded orchestras in Russia today."

What They’re Saying

"Like everything else about how Pletnev runs this orchestra, he takes nothing for granted... And also like everything else about this remarkable organization, he makes it seem not just new but newly worthwhile."
