What is Renée Fleming gonna sing in Athens? ***UPDATED***


Renée Fleming debuts in Athens on July the 3rd and Parsi´s got some excl. info on what is the chiffon diva gonna sing!

Well, not many surprises as you can guess....

Je marche sur tous les chemins & Adieu notre petite table (Manon)
In quelle trine morbide & Sola perduta abbandonata (Manon Lescaut)
Salce....Ave Maria (Otello)
Mercé dilette amiche (I Vespri Siciliani)
Vissi d' arte (Tosca)
O mio babbino caro (Gianni Schicchi)

Not bad...Just two wishes:

a) i hope there will be no microphone for Renée at the vast Roman Odeon where even huge voices have encountered problems (Marilyn Horne for example)

b) I hope we get to listen to "Měsíčku na nebi hlubokém", Rusalka's Song to the moon.
Pleeeeeeeeease.

***UPDATE***

As expected, the above were officially confirmed by the Athens Festival website...

We also learn that her gown will have the signature of Angel Sanchez...

How about some Korngold or Strauss? I really love Renée.

Take care, Parsi ;-)
