Renee Fleming (soprano), Michael Fabiano (tenor), Elizabeth DeShong (mezzo-soprano), Vitalij Kowaljow (bass), San Francisco Opera, Riccardo Frizza (conductor)
This is the first EuroArts release in cooperation with the San Francisco Opera, internationally recognized as one of the top opera companies in the world. Renee Fleming, 'America's most-loved and most-lauded opera singer' (The Times), plays Lucrezia Borgia with passion and outstanding virtuosity, with a top-notch cast led by internationally acclaimed conductor Riccardo Frizza. Fleming plays the infamous Renaissance femme fatale whose ruthless pursuit of power reveals her poignant vulnerability when she comes face to face with her long-lost son. (Needless to say, the opera's plot, based on Victor Hugo's melodramatic play, is pure fiction.) Recorded live in high definition at the War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco, August 2012.
