One of the world’s most sought after opera singers, Renée Fleming, will take to the Concert Hall stage for a special one-off recital – her first Brisbane performance in over a decade.
Fresh from her Broadway debut, Fleming will enchant Brisbane audiences with this rare Australian appearance to perform several of her signature works including Ravel’s Shéhérazade and selections from Canteloube’s Songs of the Auvergne, accompanied by pianist Richard Bado.
One of the most talented and decorated sopranos of our time, Fleming’s sparkling career spans three decades and has seen her grace the world’s greatest opera stages and concert halls from The Met in New York, to La Scala in Italy and the Winter Palace in St Petersburg.
“The People’s Diva” has been equally successful outside theatres – in 2014 Fleming was the first classical artist to perform the Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl, and also made history in 2012 when she performed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Diamond Jubilee.
Presented by Queensland Performing Arts Centre and Brisbane Festival in association with Opera Queensland.
