The Beautiful Voice sings Verismo

"Drama and passion are what these pieces are all about."
Renée Fleming

The Beautiful Voice has got a new CD that will be out in September.
It´s name: Verismo and obviously it's Verismo arias what she sings.

-World Premiere Recording: The aria ‘Sola, perduta, abandonata!’ from the tragic final scene of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut is recorded here for the first time ever in Puccini’s original manuscript version.

-Jonas Kaufmann joins Renée Fleming for an irresistible melody from Act II of Puccini’s La Rondine.

For the impatient ones, here's Renee Fleming singing the original version of
"Sola, perduta, abandonata" in Athens, July 2008
