“A superstar by any measure...” The New York Times

“A voice as warm and rich as a fine single malt...” The Times, London

“One of the truly magnificent voices of our time” (Los Angeles Times), soprano Renée Fleming captivates audiences with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. Beloved by opera and classical music audiences, she has won extraordinary crossover fame and fans for her performances of musical theater—including a critically acclaimed performance in Broadway’s Carousel in 2018; she performed before millions as the first classical artist ever to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl; and in a rare double-header for a classical singer, she was featured on the soundtrack of two Best Picture and Best Soundtrack nominees at the 2018 Academy awards, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and The Shape of Water, which won both prizes. Don’t miss this four-time Grammy winner when she performs at the Sandler Center!
